Draw as you write, tell my story. By inventing free, spontaneous alexandrines, drawing while writing becomes automatic and the rhythm of words follows the rhythm of the drawing. Even if most of the time, the texts are unreadable, a few words are revealed, and allow me to penetrate my universe. The main thing is there, to tell my story. To echo that of others. To say that we are what we have experienced, what others have made us experience. Psalmodify these pieces of life, a little enigmatic, but so clear for all those who know how to see them.
Life summary I was born in 1962, in Paris. That is one of the only certainties about the beginning of my story. For the rest, I have doubts... These elements of history shed light on my artistic career: my father was an engineer, my father was a nourishing painter. Long before I knew that, I studied engineering, and I have always created, and painted seriously for almost 20 years... Two fathers, two facets, two lifelines conducted in parallel. Today, at 55 years old, after a period of intense production and artistic presence between 2000 and 2012, followed by a break of a few years, I create again and in a stable position, reflecting this double cultural and biological origin, I live today in the North, near Lille, filled for 30 years by a wonderful woman with whom I have built an extraordinary family with our 3 children whom I adore. I do not draw artistic inspiration from it, but find there at every moment a support, a forestay, a pillar that rejuvenates and strengthens me... Multiple exhibitions... Collectives and individual, in my presence or through agents, in galleries, in multiple public places or in my studio opened for the occasion, allow me for almost 20 years to exhibit my work, and to enlarge the circle of amateurs of my work. And every time, every meeting, every sale brings me joy.
