Born in 1980.
Lives and works in Nantes/France.

Graduated from the Ecole des Beaux-arts in Paris, member of the Oulipo, author of a compendium of pastiches of literary classics (Cent titres, Éditions Grasset 2014), of a novel inspired by her collection of shopping  lists (Sinon j’oublie, Éditions Grasset, 2017) and of a treaty of nihilism for youth (Jean-Loup fait des trucs, Éditions Les Fourmis rouges, 2015), she is also one of the « Papous » on France Culture and contributes to the magazines Mon Lapin Quotidien (L’Association), Le Courage (Éditions Grasset) and the late Le Tigre.
Her work, exclusively made up of multiples, combines Pop culture and classical culture, Web culture and art history, within a puzzle on the codes of photography and of publishing.
