While there, she completed a PhD on the relationship between art and religion in contemporary Scandinavian art.  She then moved to London and started teaching art history with adult education providers. She has since developed a range of courses focusing on 19th and early 20th century Western art and has published articles in both French and English in academic journals as well as magazines and newspapers.
