...I started to paint spontaneously, almost instinctively; over time and with experiments, my work became better structured and more defined.
Then finally came the color and my passion for it !
Finally, many trips to Italy, Spain or the United States have refined my desires and possible adventures of expression...

...Very much connected to Mankind and its relationship with the Land, my work is articulated around the theme of individual, collective even territorial identities.
The inhabited Man is also an inhabitant; thus, he shapes and imbues profoundly his places of life.
My work aims to highlight these exchanges and cultures through the research and expression of traces, marks, thoughts, sensations and emotions.... To me, they constitute true identifying signs of both the man and his " ground " of life...

...Through the work of color, I thus seek to "write" my sensitive and personal vision of groups of identities linked to histories and
territories.
I use mainly vivid colors which allow me, not to portray reality but undoubtedly, to express my impressions as well as my emotion.
My supports, as for them, serve to amplify the use that I make of the color.
Recovered supports, I also take care to select them authentic and full of stories...

...I began this work with the thematic of Portrait and Landscape which are for me intimately and fundamentally linked.
My recent works develop a pictorial research work based on the representation of "Reliefs".
Through these dreamlike landscapes, regions of physical, psychological and spiritual dimensions, I invite thought, reverie and maybe escapism.
My work foundations are often photographs gathered or taken; they allow me to define in advance the forms and the contours of my paintings.
Freeze-frames, or fixations of time and instant, they give me information on individuals and their frame of life or just locations... They can testify of experiences, memories, or by analogy, on the way in which the objects which surround us are likely to
generate with the passing of time some types of portraits.
The Color and the Support are searching, through my painter's eye, for some of the roots of our contemporary identities...
