Artist's info

My paintings are essentially figurative. My chosen medium is oil on canvas. I also use gold leaf, which reflects light as if it were the light-source itself. Characters may be surrounded by motifs or ornaments which emphasize the symbolic aspects of the scene. In nude or portrait work, my inspiration finds its source in myths, sacred icons and talesÖ Perhaps we can refer to these as "classic" inspirations, but for me they function as archetypes.



I am a self-taught Artist. I have been painting for 17 years before coming to the United State in 2000. I lived in the north of France where I have shown my art in various places.


Career Highlights:

Since I moved to the Bay Area, I have had the opportunity to exhibit my art in Palo Alto, Burlingame, Carmel, and San Francisco.

I am currently working on a Tarot Series, depicting the 22 major Arcana.
