The Lecturer — Violaine Hemery

Violaine has always had an artistic propensity.

After graduating from high school with a solid foundation in visual arts (primarily modern and postmodern periods), she decided to enter a school of photography where she later attained a Professional Diploma.

This first photography foray enabled her to build a strong foundation, and allowed her to successfully enroll into the prestigious Gobelins School in Paris, famous for its highly competitive entry and top-rate curriculum.

She began her career as a colour specialist, presiding over the entire professional photolab production from film development to high standard prints for important exhibitions. Within this span of time, she worked closely with art curators and renowned photographers like Sabine Pigalle, Luc Boegly, Michel Denance, Olivier Buhagiar, Stephane Couturier, Nigel Dickinson to name a few. They had such great synergy and her clients were so impressed with her that three of them even gave her an autographed copy of their published book with an enclosed thank you note, upon conclusion of their collaboration.

Later, she continued her career in the field of photography in the other end of the world, this time working as a fine arts photographer in Hong Kong.

In 2010, Violaine decided to embark on her journey in the graphic design industry and opened her own company in Singapore. She mainly renders graphic design solutions for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and entrepreneurs as well as developing effective branding solutions for her clients. Among her clients are illustrious names like the French Chamber of Commerce in Singapore and IPG Mediabrands.

She enrolled into CMA in October 2010 to acquire important new skills and take her knowledge in visual culture to the next level. During her journey as a student at CMA, Violaine and four other teammates won the celebrated Yellow Pencil at the D&AD student awards competition for the open brief category.

As is evident from her recent triumph on the international creative stage, Violaine demonstrates passion in everything she does.
