With her dual background -- mother from Cameroon and French father -- Vickie Frémont has lived between two different cultures, two worlds. She speaks several languages (French, Spanish, Italian, English…) She has traveled widely, and her formal education includes degrees in anthropology, language teaching, as well as applied and fine arts. She has an abiding passion for the art, culture and music of Africa. She says, "much more than as a teacher, I think of myself as someone who opens doors -- the doors inside us that make it possible to discover creativity and richer communication with other people."
As a teacher, she has developed programs for all ages based on recycling varied materials to make craft objects with an African inspiration.
As a Jewelry designer, she says...
“My jewelry speaks about beauty as a source of empowerment. Each piece is unique, each woman is unique”.
Vickie Frémont is an artist, designer and anthropologist
