             "I grew up in Paris. I was a good student,  completed a double major in business and tax law and received many job offers. But I was unhappy because I knew I could do better with my time and talents. I wanted to have an impact and bring joy to people through art. A health crisis when I was about to start working in consulting or banking, helped me make a big jump: I went to art school and became a full time artist. It was 30 years ago!
             I sometimes call myself a "maker of dreams" because I'd love to make your dream come true on a canvas: whether it is to represent your favorite vacation place or to depict a fruitful garden, to create a portrait of your pet, or to paint a colorful animal, I also work on commission." - Flo

               Flo's paintings were exhibited at the De Young Museum in San Francisco, at the SFMOMA Artists Gallery in San Francisco, at the Los Gatos Museum in Los Gatos, and at the Triton Museum in Santa Clara.
               Between 2010 and 2020 she created more than 100 murals mostly at low-income schools in the San Francisco Bay Area.
                Flo is an artist who wants to build community, inspire joy, highlight beauty in the world, and lift up people with her artworks.
                She explains more about her creative process and her inspiration, in her blog here.
