In the recent past few years, Ségolène has lived and worked between France, Ukraine, and Russia. She studied at the Beaux-Arts in Paris in the studio of abstract painting under the guidance of Dominique Gauthier (2013).

Recently, her work was shown at the Fondation Agnès B La Fab in Paris in the exhibition Regards hors-champ et Paysages.

Her works are part of the collections of the Fondation Agnès B, the city of Montrouge, la banque Crédit agricole, and Fondation L’Accolade.

Her abstract oil paintings center on gestures and improvisation, exploring the depths of abstract expression. For the past year, Ségolène has been developing a series around the Red Forest (in Chernobyl, Ukraine), where the use of an abnormal fluorescent light suggests the presence of radioactivity. Her use of radiant colors explores life, or the absence of it, in the landscape of the forest.
