"I work to develop my own language through visual art. My personal touch, my interpretation of the subjects that attract me; I love music, and the hustle and bustle of cities, architecture, and my natural body language moves me more towards the lines. I like strong contrasts and good vibes."

Printemps - Oil 24 x 24 in.

"When I was in elementary school, I had a young friend whose father taught art. She had everything she needed to tinker, paint, collage. We spent hours creating. I think I was born to create. I start drawing very early, as well as watercolour classes at age 11. At 15 years I decided to follow fine art classes: drawing, studies of tones, oil painting, classes of great masters. In high school, I took photography courses. I want to have more mastery of techniques to be freer to realize what’s in my head.

I work to develop my own language through visual art; my personal touch, my interpretation of subjects that attract me. Early I worked with portraits, then came a period of flowers. It is during this period that I learned to work with spatulas and other tools.

I love music, and the hustle and bustle of cities, architecture, and my natural body language move me more towards the lines, the gestures horizontally and vertically, I am attracted to the city. I work a lot on the interpretation of cities, and through them, I look for a rendering that is free, more engaging, more impressionistic. I always work on that, but I give myself the freedom to touch other subjects, such as boats at sea, fantastic scenes, and landscapes.

I like strong contrasts, and most of all, I like the picture to have an atmosphere. Whether it’s the vibe of the city, its calm of the morning, its nightlife, or the quiet beauty of the seaside, of the boats, or even all the splendour of the fantasy worlds, imaginary, inspired by video games. I like to go somewhere else and make people travel."
