From the age of eight until 1996, she studied drawing, painting, ceramics and sculpture at the Ecole des Beaux Arts de Sète (art school).
She then trained as a fashion/dress designer in Aix-en-Provence and in Marseille.
After graduating, she moved to Paris, the world’s fashion capital, working for Givenchy and Arrow for six years.
 
The light of the south of France beckoned, however, as did the need to find crucial time to sate her desire to create, which brought her home to Sète, where she could enjoy the freedom of her workshop, the joy of painting, drawing and designing, and learning all sorts of new techniques.
Whether in small or large, abstract or figurative formats, Johanne is above all steered by the emotions of the present, which give her work a particular power.
Johanne was awarded 3rd place in the prix du concours Atout Fil in Vauvert in 1998; she was invited to the Salon international de la Chaussure (MIDEC) trade fair in 1999, where she presented an original collection of shoes, sculpted in wood; and in the same year, she was awarded 3rd place in the Concours Impression et Création textile des ennoblisseurs lyonnais, presided by Jean-Charles de Castelbajac.
