Hello, I live in Tunisia where I am technical Director in a company of clothes industry. From 14 to 16 years, in a Technical school, learned decoration and ceramics. Previously, I have the chance to have Master Tawil (ancien painter at the court of the King Farouk of Egypte)wicht helped me to progress in the drawing and painting (gouache and watercolour). During summer 66 ( beatnicks period), I  passed every time to draw on the pavements of Canebière and the Quay of the Vieux Port (Old Harbour) of Marseilles. With the re-entry my parents  put me at work  because I does to have a serious trade!! 
I have continued to draw and paint at time wasted during mny years.
My wife and me came to work in Tunisia into 90. For various reasons without interets to day, we lost all our businesses. I remained many years without touching neither pencils, nor brushes.
But after the meeting with painters in Tunisia, I have gone back to the drawing and, for a few months, to painting. I have evil has to understand which were my desires, I badly sought itself, I not passed by again with the white not badly of fabrics. And then recently, I carried out that the majority of my drawings were portraits. Then, I paints portraits. With my way. How I them sents when I am in front of the fabric and there, I give myself pleasure!! Then, if you take to pleasure you also to see them, c'est that I am can be on the good way.
