Born in Reims in 1970, I arrived with my family in the
Périgord in the 1980's. I met a painter-sculptor Yves Le
Large, who passed on to me his passion for drawing and
painting. By going together to exhibitions for example in the
Cloisters at Reims or in Epinal I was initiated into an
appreciation of art in general, but when it comes to technique
I am self-taught and never lack inspiration.
Creation of individual works. I work on large, sometimes very
large, canvases. Working on different foundations such as
stretched canvas, wood or plaster I paint with acrylics and
create projects to order.
Using mixed media I create canvases of rich surface texture
and colour, full of emotion. My work asks questions and never
leaves people indifferent.
I favour layering in my work and use mortar and pigments to
this effect. These assemblages of materials are first brought
together on the canvas before the work is enlivened by the
addition of acrylic paint. The whole process is long but the
energy and life-force behind every piece is what makes each
canvas unique and sensitive.
