From Chinese and German origins, Beatrix has been torn between her militant role in favour of ecology and her urge for artistical creation. She studied architecture but then switched to social sciences and environmental policy, before joining Greenpeace and embarking on board the emblematic Rainbow Warrior in 1992. Then, she worked for several years for various environmental charities. However her artistic side finally took the upper hand: she followed the world famous Ecole Boulle cabinet making cursus in Paris and created purpose made pieces. She designed her first collection « Chut ! de bois » in 2009.
