I First looked over life in 1947 near Agde antic grec city on french mediterranean shore.
As a child I was very deeply involved in discovering and understanding the where about of things.
How does it work?.....why do we do it that way?....How it is made?....Very quiet I was spending hours watching and memorising the ongoing surrounding me…. Let’s say that my grand father mechanical work shop was a great place to be in order to practice this endless and fascinating exercise!
So I was peacefully evolving among mechanics , customers & suppliers without disrupting anything
learning a great deal about life without even knowing it…..
My grand father was a very creative and inventive man, sketching things and people as well in a very caricatural way.
He initiated me to drawing pushing my parents to register me at a private drawing course.
Where I learned the basics of drawing modelling painting and copying of master pieces from 9 year old
to my teen age. By then I became more interest in mechanic and pursued a technical scholarship.
My professional career evolved from designer to managing consultant in purchasing logistic and organisation within industrial manufacturing environment.
Despite a busy international career I never completely stopped drawing and modelling.
The year 2002 was a big turn in my career and life approach.
I decided to spend more time to drawing, painting and creating . Starting with old master copying.
I slowly evolved toward a more personal approach thank to continuing education.
Where I learned to be more creative. Discovering new supports and new techniques.
I am strongly attracted by atmospheres, architecture, industrial environment, nudes.
