I was born in July 1967, in Neuilly-sur-Seine near Paris and grew up in France, Germany and Africa. As a child, I saw the world as full of people of all kind of races and colours speaking hundreds of different dialects. Maybe that is why I do not respect a conventional approach of colours in my work. These encounters with different cultures gave me a taste to experiment as various trips to Africa, Latin America, Asia and the Caribbean opened my vision to a broad range of bright colours, which are often used in my paintings.

I just love expressing myself using my vivid imagination and wish to give my interpretation of feelings and beauty based on the human body.I have always been interested in expressing myself through art, being music, dance or painting. When my friends started to buy or commission my work, I realized I enjoyed it more than I thought decided to give it more time. I still consider myself more as an autodidact and a “touche à tout”. I look at several ways of expressing “Féminité” and sensuality, another vision of life through dreams and imagination.
I’d love my work to be able to cast a spell on the viewer and tell him things he does not know about himself through a fascinating exchange. I want to transcribe the way women feel; trace their inner emotions on canvas. I think some women live in a fantasy world where they would love to be someone else (thinner, blonder, taller, more beautiful, happier…). I work as well on the simplification of shapes and silhouettes.

Most of my work is figurative, expressionist or fauvist based on the human figure. The mediums I use the most are Oil painting and etching.
