A word by the artist
I started working in restaurants when I was 15 and ended up managing my own bar at 21 years old for a little more than three years. I hadn’t realized yet that my creativity was slowly but surely going to be a fundamental element in my life.
Nevertheless there was a soft voice whispering kind and colorful words to me. That voice belongs to my grand-mother, my “Mamie”, that I affectionately renamed “Mémé” in this blog.
Let me tell you a bit about this fabulous woman. Curious, elegant in every circumstances, she used to bring me on her cultural adventures when I was a child. Once she joined the stars, I continued to develop my eager mind often thinking that she would have like it (“Mémé Aurait Aimé” means my grandma would have liked it), what she would have worn and what we would have discovered together.
In 2015 I registered the brand “Mémé Aurait Aimé” as a small tribute to our strong connection without knowing that this brand would be, later on, the name of my blog and the beginning of my artistic adventures.
MEME AURAIT AIME
After a few years living a night life lifestyle, I realized that it did not suit me or who I was anymore even if I really liked my job. I felt like achieving something more personal, more feminine and the wish to move forward made me rethink my needs and create a blog based on my inspirations. My brand had finally found a purpose!
“Mémé Aurait Aimé” is a mix of all my discoveries, interviews and crushes on people and places in French speaking area of Switzerland (“Suisse Romande”) that I felt like sharing. It’s meant to be a warm and friendly platform where people can share. The main purpose being more cultural than lifestyle.
In parallel to my blog, I am a Social Media Manager for an association of “Vaudois” restaurants and I am currently studying Design and Innovation at the Open University. I decided to take up university while working à 100% more out of curiosity but later realized that my artistic inclination was catching up with me. Since then, I have developed a unique illustration style where words come to life in finesse and color.
I am lucky to be able to create all my illustrations in my new workshop in Etoy, Switzerland.
