Welcome dear visitor,

Since the early years of my life, I have been drawing wherever I was, even in class and in the highschool room where my math teacher would regularly confiscate my art work.Yet I passed my BaccalaurĂ©at examination and studied electronics.
Deeply rooted in the Jura mountains in my heart and soul,  I blossom out in the country between my friends, animals, the wild country, the mountains, music and, as I used to say,
my "solitude therapies".
Later, I had several exhibitions in several towns and villages and though I am not attracted to competition because art seems to me to be so suggestive, I took part in three competitive shows and got two prizes. I wrote and illustrated a book on Franche-ComtĂ© and my publisher offered me to illustrate a book about Oyonnax. Recently I wrote and illustrated a  book on the old oven of my village during Saint Mickael's celebration, and  translated it in english. "Baked in the oven!" is available at Amazon and Lulu,
Endlessly looking for great spaces and freedom, I have had horses since I was 13, I flew planes for about 20 years.
I hike, ski, take pictures and I stayed in Colorado (USA) several times, a place where I could confirm my liking for themes about wild and snowy nature. Music (the piano and the guitar) has always been present in my life.
It also helps me when I paint. I am interested in different subjects and various themes and I love to explore them.
I wrote  a new book "baked in the oven!" available at and Lulu .com. It tells about all the adventures I got with the big and old oven of my village. Have a look!
I could now start discussing on art and painting but I am afraid you might get bored, the subject being endless as art itself is, so I won't.

Thanks for your visit.
