JOELLE KEM LIKA
Painting the Pulse of Life…
I was born in March 1955.
I spent my childhood and adolescence by the Atlantic Ocean, where I picked up my love and inspiration of the ocean, the forests…The appeasing wild that I already liked to draw. At age 20, I moved to Paris and went to art school but simultaneously I discovered psychology. I got passionate about it and chose this for a career : psychotherapist in the heart of the Marais district in Paris. A country home in Burgundy near Chablis, allowed me to go back to art school : Beaux Arts in Auxerre… Ten years of sheer joy. I ended my psychotherapist career in 2006, I was 51 years old… and wanted to start a new life. After exhibiting in various places in France since 2000, I have opened my own galleries :
In 2007 in Sainte Vertu sur Serein, Burgundy
In 2009 in Aquitaine by the Atlantic Ocean
In 2010 in the heart of Paris… near Les Halles and the bustling Montorgueil street
