French artist, Valérie is passionate about painting and photography. She lived in the Detroit area for a few years and felt truly inspired by the city. She worked on a photo-project aiming at photographing the rebirth of the city and picturing the hope and the activity that characterizes today’s Detroit. Being from a different country allowed her to have a fresh and original look on the city of Detroit.

Her style is unique and reflects this distance she is able to take. Her paintings are abstract and the fruit of many hours of intense work during which her painting becomes her whole world.
