PARIS (75), France
7 works

Born in Paris in 1949, I discovered painting in 2006, by participating in a watercolour workshop organized by Pascale Delhaye, in Cayeux sur mer, in the Baie de Somme.
After having continued this experience the following year, I decided to perfect my watercolour practice by following a 3-year training course at Marie-Claire Gondran’s MclaireG Workshop in Paris.

The Baie de Somme region, where I live during the summer period, is my main source of inspiration.
After having participated in some local exhibitions, I present two of my works at the Salon des Peintres de l’O.T. in Abbeville in 2011.

In 2012, I won the Municipality’s prize during the exhibition organized by the Club Artistique Caouais, at the Cayeux sur Mer festival hall.
Le Printemps des Arts, organized by the O.T. d’Abbeville in April 2013, dedicates its gallery to me, shared with three other regional artists.
In August 2013, my exhibition "Somme de lumières" at the Fromager gallery in Ault, France, was a great success.
The Jury Prize at the "Landscapes and Modernity" Painters’ Fair of the Tourist Office in Abbeville in 2013 was awarded to me.
From August to September 2014, the "Château des Lumières" in Saint Blimont, opened its exhibition rooms to me.


In 2015, I will exhibit at the Tréport for the REGG’ART exhibition at the Reggianni Hall.
"Young Painter at the age of retirement", I seek to share my passion with other artists and an audience sensitive to my expression.
