I’m a french painter and designer living in Austral Africa and Switzerland.
Formerly from the jewellery industry, my works try to be an artistic translation born of my interests for lavish shapes and the colours of nature. An early life in Africa and subsequent travels developed my inspiration in the observation of exotic aesthetics, whilst they reveal a personal perception and reflection on the events and path of a human life.
I’ve been tutored in ancient oil and watercolor painting techniques by french hyper-realist painter Claude Yvel, which has influenced me in the use of the finest long lasting colours and high quality materials for my projects, in as far as an itinerant life can allow.
