Born and raised in Brittany, Armelle received her BA from the École supérieure des arts appliqués Duperré, Paris. She studied environmental art, with special training in mosaic, fresco, and design. From 1989-1992 she was glass painter and designer for Atelier Charles Robert (Brittany), where she worked on restoring 18th and 19th century stained-glass windows from the churches of Melgven, Coray and Grâce-Uzel, as well as designing windows for private residences and gallery collections. Her extensive work in France and Canada also includes restoration as glazier in association with Atelier Durant (Maisons-Alfort, France) of 18th, 19th and 20th century stained-glass windows of churches in Marmoutier, the Musée de Cluny, and in the Église du Raincy.

In the United States Armelle has worked for 15 years as staff glass designer and glass painter for internationally known Reflection Studios in Emeryville, California.

Her work there has been extensive and included restoration and installation of stained-glass panels at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, Reno’s Washoe County Courthouse, and San Francisco’s City Hall and Court of Appeals. Armelle served as artist assistant to the renowned artist Narcissus Quagliata, with whom she did cartoon design and glass cutting for the “The Gift” at Grace Cathedral.

For Nzilani Glass, she managed conservation projects at the Pacific Union Club and Old St. Mary’s Church, both in San Francisco. Since 1999 her main focus has been as project director and lead artist for the McDonald Windows.

In 2003 Armelle established her own glass studio, Atelier Le Roux, in Oakland, California. Her work there includes original pieces for galleries and exhibition, custom design for public and private spaces, illustration and painting.
