I am drawing for more than 35 years.

 I left nationale education in 2005 to paint and write full  time. I have joined the Mots Migrateurs in 2006 when they do their exhibition " Mots'arts": texts and artist's works together.
PAINTINGS: I always used painting to convey strongs feelings. I enjoy the physical activity of painting large picture.And more, acrylic allows to come back on the work, even to change it completly, which is totally impossible with ink and pastel! you need to think the drawing a little bit before dooing it.
INK AND PASTEL: during the launching of the Mots Migrateurs's book of shot stories " de temps en temps" in which we had both written, Luc Hazebrouck asked me to illustrate his philosophic tale " La traversée du désert". I had to work on the background of my drawings which was inexistant until that day. I found that pastel would be the best choice to keep the lightness of the pictures without weaken the ink. Since that time I started to use ink with pastel for all my pictures but the small one as postcards.
LA TRAVERSEE DU DESERT ( the desert's crossing): I hesitated to join Luc because i draw for celebrate the life; so I was not happy to brin Death into my works. Even if you can find the Death along my writtings: Death is one of the two characters of my short story " Stay young until death". And they are three in my novel "The spiteful death".
We have shown " La traversée du désert" many times: Luc telling the story with short pieces of music he played with his clarinette and my illustratings projected on background.
