Adèle Zoé Houssin was born in Paris, France, on February 6th, 1984.
After completing a degree in art history at university (Paris 8), she enrolled at the drawing school Clouet (Paris 11) and prepared to enter the Academy of art and Graphic Industry Estienne (Paris 13) to obtain a Master 2 in typographic design (obtained with distinction in 2008).
An internship in typography at the Imprimerie Nationale brought her closer to calligraphy, which she explored further during a stay in Toulouse (France) with the calligrapher Bernard Arin.
Adèle works professionally with the luxury goods industry (Hermès, Valentino...) on calligraphy projects. She also works as a graphic designer and typographer for Delcourt-Tonkam and private clients.
In 2013, Adèle moved to Amsterdam. She is developing her work as a painter and photographer on issues linked to the importance of preserving nature, with a special affinity to the water element.
Exploring the energy of nature and the human connection to it, Adèle found inspiration in the intricate relationship between the elements and the fascinating reactions that occur when two substances meet.
The encounter of her imagination with the landscapes of Iceland and Finnish Lapland has influenced and enriched her palette and refined her research into the purity of snow-covered lands and celestial immensity.
