After several years modeling the clay, I have dedicated myself to painting for ten years. I live and I paint in the Paris region.
For me, painting is creating this parallel universe that transports me, where I express and share my feelings. My paintings reflect my perception of the world. They are a bridge between the real and the felt.
I am nurtured by my past as an art historian and by the artists I had the pleasure of meeting, whether they were old, when I worked at the Louvre and Orsay Museums, or contemporary, when I was in charge Patronage and Studio Dessins of Maison Hermès.
From my years of sculpture, I remember the taste for the material: mixture of paints, binders, paper, sand, work with a knife in the thickness of the paste… Working in acrylic was obvious.
I always start from reality, sometimes to better get away from it: one idea generates another, one color applied calls for another, a balance is created, or broken, and you often have to start over... I am a figurative artist who dreams abstract.
I love nature, a constantly renewed source of inspiration. I like the looks carrying stories of children from the other side of the world. And those of the animals, captured close-up. I like color and light, those of the seas and of the land. I like matter, especially that worked over time.
I like to move from one universe to another, a pretext to express my sensitivity and my emotions.
For me, agility, beyond technique, or the fact of moving from one universe to another, consists in showing a certain lightness, a certain resilience, a flexibility that allows you to accept to question, to evolve, to adapt and to constantly start again to seek the right balance...
