I graduated in Painting Conservation from ATEC (Bouches du Rhône) in 2008 after four years training. I then started working in collaboration with a private studio in the South West (Gers) on paintings classified as Historical Monuments.
I wished to broaden my training with experience abroad and I did this by obtaining an internship at the National Gallery of Ireland in Dublin, as part of the Heritage Council Grant 2009. I quickly integrated into the international team of conservators and I am given the conservation-restoration of two French paintings from the 17th and 18th centuries.
Following my desire to extend this rewarding experience, I was offered to be the lead conservator for the conservation-restoration project of the largest painting in the collection: "The Marriage of Strongbow and Aoife" by D. Maclise funded by The Bank of America Merryl Lynch. The next two years were then dedicated to its conservation. While there, I created my own business in 2011, which allowed me to contract for different museums, institutions and private studios.
Following my 5 years in Dublin, after honing my skills, developing a repertoire of treatments and widening my experience, I decided to return to my native home, in order to set-up my own private practice in Montpellier.
