I've been painting since I was a child but officially opened a studio-gallery in 2002 in Müllheim, Germany. I was born in Paris, father of four children and often work with pupils. It's a lot of fun. Since 1998, I have made quite a lot of exhibitions in France, in Switzerland, in Polen and Gemany, in cities such as Mulhouse, Colmar, St Paul de Vence, Basel, Solothurn, Stettin, Francfort, Heilbronn, Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Neuenburg, Müllheim.
I want my paintings to be very spontaneous and expressive. The way I work on my canvases is quite energetic and sometimes violent, especially when I paint human beings and cities. The portraits look sometimes weird, sad, mad, because they certainly have something to tell you about the crazy world where they come from. As Woodworth said, the world! It is a wilderness where tears are hung on every tree. That's probably the reason why my landscapes usually look peaceful and harmonious... so long they can remain wild!
