The starting point
I started my adult life as an actress. I had studied drama in Paris, where I lived for many years, before going on to work in the theater, cinema and television. At that time – a time of innocence – the sense of starting out as an artist in a city with so many stimuli, the dreams, great expectations and sheer enthusiasm are among the most wonderful things I can remember in life. At some point, however, working as an actress no longer fulfilled me. I felt that I had lost the need to present myself before an audience. I yearned for something equally creative but more private, through which I could express myself in a different way and be independent. And because life is full of chapters, I one day came to the realization that this particular chapter had ended.
