Léonie Stolberg was born in the Paris suburbs. From nursery and elementary school onwards, she understood that she had an affinity with the world of art: music, drawing, singing, dance and photography as well as writing.
She's a passionate multi-tasker. Throughout her school career, she won a number of drawing and writing competitions and put herself on stage; she enjoyed taking photos of herself "with the means at hand" and opened a self-portrait blog.
When the others go on vacation, she does internships in the world of images: with photographer Juliette Agnel as an assistant, or with Hervés Sauvage, set designer for Hermès, among others. She is now sure of what she wants to do with her life: be an artist.

Léonie has always been socially excluded, "My schooling was hell, at school my classmates insulted me and spat on me every day. They were mean because I was different.

To escape this hell, her parents sent her to continue her secondary education at the Institut Saint Luc in Tournai. It was a great discovery, and in her first year she won an image prize in a photo competition with the school. At boarding school, she took photos of her friends in their rooms and began to develop a passion for body photography. During poses at school, she takes advantage of the empty studio to take photos of classmates who wish to confide in her lens.

This was also the year Léonie met her greatest enemy, censorship. The school went so far as to forbid her to exhibit during the open house.

Today, Léonie serves as a reference for students wishing to work on the theme of the body and sexuality. This reinforces her decision to persevere, despite the censorship and hate speech she continues to suffer.

At the age of 18, she graduated with top honors from her school and decided to enter the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels. She was disappointed by the rejection she received from the institution's teaching staff. She decided to set up her own business as an independent artist.

Since then, she has had a number of exhibitions and projects to her credit, including the creation of an ASBL/Galerie to help artists bring their projects to fruition, and a committed and humorous column on ULB's Radio Campus under the name "L'Odalisque Contemporaine".
