Ciou (1981) wordt geïnspireerd door parades, carnavals en Hokkai (een Japanse geest). Ze komt uit Toulouse, de roze stad in het zuiden van Frankrijk. Haar eerste belangrijke tentoonstelling was in 2004, in New-York op de flux Factory met o.a. Miss Van en Camille Rose Garcia. Hierna volgden tentoonstellingen in Parijs, Barcelona, ​​Berlijn, Rome, New-York, Portland, Brussel en Amsterdam met kunstenaars als Junko Mizuno, Gary Baseman, Sunny Buick en Tara Mc Pherson.

In mei 2009 maakte ze een solo show "Nymph" aan de Kochxbos Gallery in Amsterdam. Ze brengt je in de natuur, waar de moderne nimfen wonen met hun vreemde verrukking. Zie ook haar prachtig dusitere boek "Chat Siamois" gemaakt met de scenarist Guillaume Bianco, venusdea redacteur.

Ciou's kunstwerken zijn schattig en eng, een mix tussen wonderland en nachtmerries. Zij schildert met acryl en inkt en maakt collages als achtergrond. De Achtergrond is samengesteld door een groot aantal kleine, oude kranten, medische- of woordenboeken.

Ze houdt van het verzamelen van dierlijke skeletten, vintage speelgoed, taxidermie, tatoeage en muziek. Ze is zeer geïnteresseerd in primitieve kunst, religieuze kunst, Japanse cultuur, Art nouveau, poppen en pin ups. Ciou heeft altijd haar ogen wijd open staan voor de veranderende soms donkere wereld.
