I am a French-American painter and MD PhD (neurologist) based in San Francisco. I share my time between painting and neuroesthetics.
I have been drawing all my life. I practiced live model painting more formally in the nineties at the Ateliers des Beaux Arts de la Mairie de Paris, France, and then at the Sharon Art Studio, San Francisco, CA. More recently, I spent three years painting and drawing full time at the San Francisco Studio School.
I have practiced Neurology for many years, first in Paris, then at the University of California, San Francisco, where I co-founded the Regional Pediatric Multiple Sclerosis Center. My research work on multiple sclerosis performed at Stanford University and UCSF has been internationally recognized.
I live with my husband and our three children in a lemon yellow house in San Francisco.
