Blandine Hallé is a photographer and artist jeweller. She grew up in Paris and her family ancestry is French, German and Spanish. She moved to Western Australia in 1997 and earned a Bachelor of Commerce from Curtin University and an Advanced Diploma of Jewellery Design from CIT, Perth. In 2017, she received a Postgraduate Diploma of Contemporary Applied Arts at the Massana School of Arts & Design in Barcelona, Spain. She has exhibited in Australia, Germany and Spain and been the recipient of multiple awards.

Hallé sees matter as a language. When she creates, each element takes its place in relation to others to find meaning; a space is punctuation, a silence in which to breathe. Traversing urban or natural landscapes she collect things – objets trouvés - with her hands, or through her camera lens. Once collected, she brings these objects, and images, into her studio. Her artwork is a commentary on her emotional, cultural and sensory experiences as a French-Australian, expatriate and migrant.
