After a multidisciplinary educational background (medical sciences, perinatality, psychology, visual arts, design, information technology) that will lead to the doctorate, she feels a crush on video art and documentary cinema. Already interested in photography for many years, she made her first documentary short film following a trip to Palestine in 2014 where she accompanied tango dancers. In 2015, she participated in SPIRA's creation laboratories. She then plunges again into the perinatal environment, and makes the documentary short film "before dawn". Combining her methodological expertise and her interest in the relationship to the body, she pursues an artistic research work that deals, among other things, with the links between the physical and emotional dimensions of the experience.
