  I was born in 1952 in Bagnolet, small village near Paris.
When I was at Primary school my parents offered me a big box of tempera in order to have a bit of tranquillity for I was rather turbulent child.
I enjoyed spending hours drawing and painting with pencils, charcoal and tempera. I was fascinated by colours and forms. I liked to draw landscapes and portraits.
In the years 70  I concentrated almost exclusively in pastel and I discovered the technique of oil painting. I loved to paint objects and old villages and ruins.
I discovered works of Rosa Bonheur  hyperrealistic  French painter. Her works fascinated me.
I loved painting in a realistic style but I admire the impressionist painters too and I try to paint some  works to discover their techniques.
