My paintings are essentially
figurative. My chosen medium is oil on canvas. I also use gold
leaf, which reflects light as if it were the light-source
itself. Characters may be surrounded by motifs or ornaments
which emphasize the symbolic aspects of the scene. In nude or
portrait work, my inspiration finds its source in myths, sacred
icons and talesÖ Perhaps we can refer to these as "classic"
inspirations, but for me they function as archetypes.
I am a self-taught Artist. I
have been painting for 17 years before coming to the United
State in 2000. I lived in the north of France where I have shown
my art in various places.
Since I moved to the Bay
Area, I have had the opportunity to exhibit my art in Palo Alto,
Burlingame, Carmel, and San Francisco.
I am currently working on a
Tarot Series, depicting the 22 major Arcana.
