I am a French artist born in 1961 in Rouen, France. My inspiration comes from my travels all over the world. The colorful exotic portraits I paint reveal all the cultures I had the chance to meet.
I started drawing comics and caricatures when I was a student. My classes at the schools of art in Toulouse, France and in Ottawa, Canada made me discover both human portraits and colors. My travels to Asia and to the Americas gave me many subjects for my colorful exotic portraits. I now live in Miami, the center of so many different cultures.
I enjoy creating realistic scenery with unrealistic media and colors, alternatively using pastel, charcoal, chalk, acrylic, watercolor, collage, oil or pen. Through the colors and the movement I invite everybody to come inside my paintings.
