About Me

Clémence Powney


Hi there! I’m Clemence, a Virtual Reality and Fine Artist based in Dubaï. I was born and raised in Paris, France, to a West Indies Mum and an English Dad, so growing up I was exposed to two very different cultures. I’ve lived in Paris, London, Toulouse and now Dubai, and my artwork is a result of all this cultural diversity!

I specialize in Painting and Virtual Reality performances, art workshops and customisations, as well as family art commissions. I am also an acrylic portrait artist who creates very colorful and unique portraits with my unique style. In addition to these skills, I play the harp!

Growing up, I always had a pen and sketchbook in my hands, so I decided to go pro by studying Graphic Design and Fine Arts in Paris in 2009. Following my graduation I started my career as a freelance Graphic designer and artist in London, working mainly for a family media company.
I got into the events industry in 2015, when I moved to Toulouse, in the South of France, and added Virtual Reality to my skills in 2017!

I have had amazing opportunities to perform in France, Portugal, Abu Dhabi and China, and decided to continue my career in the United Arab Emirates, in 2022. I love the energy and artistic scene in Dubaï, and I am very fortunate to be here doing what I love.
