Originally from Belgium, Nanou has taken valuable influences from travels in Europe, America, Asia and India. 

During her journey she sources local material to expand and adapt her work to the environment while engaging with the community. 

Artist residency sponsored by the Australian Council for the Arts.
"Shading the light'project included a Public Art installation and a combination of artworks resulting from on-site analysis.
The overall body of work evolved as an international collaboration with Christine Chilcott, a Swedish photographer and Jonathan Rattner, an American filmmaker.
The collaboration was exhibited in Melbourne.
