Born in Nantes in 1967, Christine Cavellec, also known as Cryss2C, has gone into abstract pictural art early in her life in a very natural way. However as a student she graduates in chemistry in Lyon where she gets a diploma in ingeneering in 1991.
She manages to work in the environment field and at the same time keeps on his artistic work. She will wait until 2006 to attend classes at the Fine Arts School in Grasse during almost four years. She then finds time to teach abstract art to the prisonners in Grasse allowing them to get a certain sense of freedom during this class.
