I started sewing when I was about 12, making doll clothes and around the age of 15 I made myself some simple dresses and bags with the help of my mother. After that I stopped sewing for some time. After my first child was born, I felt a strong need to make and create things.

Where are you from and where do you live? What do you do other than sewing?
I come from the very small village of Normandy, France. I lived there until the age of 17, then moved to Paris to study architecture. During my studies I was lucky to stay a year in Göteborg, Sweden, thanks to an exchange program. Last year, after completing my Masters last year, I moved to Montréal, Canada where I have been living for nearly 7 months.
