The original art behind these exclusive 100% silk scarves and custom-made bags was created by painter and colorist, Anne-Joëlle who studied in Europe in the 1980’s, attending various painting ateliers and art courses (Sotheby’s and ICA-Institute of Contemporary Art/Christies in London). Several years spent in New York City in the late 1990’s gave her the opportunity to join “The Art Students League of New York”.

Anne-Joëlle is a life member of “The Art Students League of New York”, and recently received a fine art painting 2-year certificate from the League. She exhibits internationally and her paintings are held in numerous private collections around the world.
