Why do I paint? Because as an artist and world traveler, out of my life experiences, I express with Acrylic, Watercolor, and Block-Print the diversity of human emotions and characters, as well as atmospheres emanating from objects and places. I use abstract or figurative approaches using vibrant colors most of the time. I also experience with other medium like sculpture, and monotype once in a while.
Born in France, I studied art in Paris, as well as in Switzerland. I also lived in England, Spain, and Switzerland before moving to Santa Cruz, CA, 39 years ago. Life took me away from my brushes and canvas for a few years. I am really happy to be doing art again and to be fully involved in artist communities locally and beyond. My inspiration and dedication continue to grow every day …
