Born in 1961 in Perpignan, France, "In the center of the World" in reference to Salvador Dali. Coming from a long lineage of artists, Aline is an abstract expressionism painter as well as a lyric soprano singer. Aline developed an interest in the creative process at an early age,
participating in her first exhibition at age fifteen. She acquired the
technique of figurative art at high school in France, encouraged by two
Fine art teachers. Aline then used charcoal and oil pastels, painting
portraits, nudes, and landscapes. The sensation she felt by touching
the material, made her feel closer to her work. She completed her
studies of Computer science at Snow College, UT, USA, where she also
refined her skills. Even though it was necessary for her to acquire
basic figurative art skills, she wanted to "fly away", to "liberate"
herself from this style of art. Aline was then progressively drawn to
abstract expressionism and action painting. This art characterizes the
importance of body movement in the work. Eventually artists like Willem
De Kooning influenced her. Aline is currently residing in southern
