"I grew up in forêt de Grésigne. I moved to Canada and taught adults for twenty years, in Vancouver.

Once an empty nester, I flew back home and opened les Arteliers. I offer a safe space where to tap into your inner richness and power. Relax and trust yourself.

My concept of paradise: French food, wine, sunshine, art and slow life."
