Born in France, Béatrice Coron lived in Egypt, Mexico, and China before to move to New York. An urban dweller for the last twenty years, Coron launched her career as an artist in New York.
Coron's career took her from illustration to bookarts, fine arts, films and public art. Rather than leaving an expression for another, her work makes artist books for viewer to step in, or fine arts with illustration methods. Coron favors an expression that would englobe all her creative instincts rather than separate. Drawing with a blade she makes environments for words and thoughts. Her work is major collections such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Walker Art Center and her public art in subways and airport among others.
