Valentine Emilia Bossert was born in 1990 near Geneva, Switzerland.

Until recently she lived in London, where she moved in 2012 to study a BA in Drawing at Camberwell College, UAL after quitting the medical career she had first undertook in Switzerland. After graduating in 2015 she continued her studies with an MA in Modern European Philosophy at Kingston University, from which she graduated in early 2017. Active since 2012, she has already curated and been part of numerous group exhibitions and other collaborative projects.

Her work is deeply influenced by her drawing practice and also extends to printmaking, sculpture, video and installation. The implicit concepts at play in her work, which evolve around concerns related to human consciousness and experience, are rooted in her philosophical enquiries.
