In a few words...

Artist & Diver

Graduated from College of Fine Arts, I've a keen eye for beauty, a dreamy child soul, and I draw my inspiration from Art History & Litterature.

While being fully attentive to your desires and your personality, I love to take you into my imaginary world. With a wave of magic wand, I'll turn your dive into a piece of art you'll be proud to hang on your wall.

As a certified freediver and scuba diver, I'm always aware of your safety and comfort, and I guide you with tips and tricks throughout the session.

Under the surface

Since my specialty is underwater portraiture, you can easily guess that I have a passion for the sea, the lakes, the rivers... For nature in general, to tell the truth!

As a former Parisian, I felt how disconnected we live from nature, as if we were not part of it, as if it existed only to serve us.

I dove for the first time when I was 14, with my dad as an instructor. With this new ability of breathing underwater, I felt like I was introduced to a complete new world. I mostly saw big brown seaweeds, but anyway it was magical !

I absolutely love crossing the waters' mirror, getting rid of my gravity, being one with the sea and discovering hidden worlds. Each time I dive, my childlike soul awakens and I feel like Alice entering Wonderland.

Inspiration & Style

Shadow | Light

Totally in love with chiaroscuro, I like to see things emerge in the light, from a shadow full of mysteries...

Reality | Dream

Your face. Your love. Your story. But tinged with a hint of onirism.

Underwater photography is the perfect tool for that : under the surface, poetry is instantly invited.

Photography | Painting

I love creating pictorial portraits of you, that look a bit like paintings.

I draw my inspiration from baroque portraitists, Pre-Raphaelites, surrealist painters, and many more...
