Painter, op. 1774 - 1798.

Active at Sèvres by 1774, she painted flower sprays, bouquets and garlands, floral border patterns and floral or other monograms. Occasionally she worked in carmine monochrome and some forms of decoration involved in gilding. She decorated in both hard and soft paste.

She worked mainly on tea and service wares and plaques, but also added plain or patterned grounds to a number of cases.

Born Geneviève Le Roy, she married Vincent Taillandier with whom she sometimes collaborated.
