studies at the Academy of the Arts at Nîmes, then at Perpignan, I
continued with the drawing, trying various techniques (pastel,
oil, acrylic, watercolor).
In 1980, it became obvious… nothing
would make me happier than the alchemy of pigments in water, the
transparency and the subtlety of watercolour.
today is more than a means of expression, it's a passion and an art of
living. It's my own little initiatory way as it were...
do not look to represent the elements of reality, but rather to
decipher what surrounds me, to throw light on the echoes of an emotion,
of a sensation or of state of mind. To choose the right word from all
the literature of the world and of oneself demands a great mastery of
the techniques, but I don't think that one will ever be "master" of
watercolour, only be its accomplice.
