The world is a kaleidoscope of images and sensations to explore but it is only imagination and work that can make it speak and be beautiful. I am drawn to the American West by the forms and the grandeur of its landscapes. In the Northeast, I look for the mystery of lakes and forests stretching as far as the eye can see, or for the charm of the coasts with their small villages, rocky edges, and sandy beaches. From the South, I keep the vibrancy of the colors, from the North, the rigor of the vast and empty spaces. Cities offer the permanent spectacle of their buildings and colorful crowds. Sometimes, a detail is enough to evoke everything.
Biography: I spent my early years in Rambervillers, a town in Les Vosges (France) After a two years sabbatical devoted to study many forms of visual Art at Ecole de l’Image (School of Images) in the nearby town of Epinal, I exhibited oils, acrylics, and etchings. In 1994, I went to the United States to teach French and philosophy in an international school. I specialized in linocuts and woodcuts. Photography, which I always used as a visual travel log, became the base of my work. My private or public buyers live in Brazil, Canada, Denmark, England, France, Japan, Norway, Sweden, and the United States of America. Galleries in France and the United States represent me. Besides art and philosophy, I like reading, writing, traveling, hiking, swimming, and snow-shoeing.
