I was born in 1972,
Filled with wonder with Commander Cousteau's Odysseys, Christian Zuber's « Camera au poing » and Théodore Monod's stories, I was from the infancy an enthusiastic budding naturalist.
Fascinated by the nature in all its diversity, the interest which I carry in animals did not stop growing by the time.
In parallel, a taste pronounced for the watercolor, allowed me to bloom in the activity of animal painter.
Thus I began painting, painting a lot; animals necessarily, birds essentially.
The meetings, the exchanges and the discussions with specialists during exhibitions and during demonstrations made me progress still in the understanding of the animal kingdom .
I love Audubon and Robert Bateman, Eugen Chisnicean and Joseph Zbukvic.
Besides, I was lucky enough to see published in the newspaper le Monde 2, in its number on the most beautiful journey diaries, a page which I dedicated to the vendean swamp's birds.
