His first experience with painting dates back to 1960 with the painter George Doublet (1911-1997); since then, he has hardly stopped painting and drawing. During his adolescence, he was first attracted by portraiture, then by the impressionist landscape. In 1972, he attended the Higher Course of Drawing of the City of Paris in the evening, then the School of Fine Arts of Rouen. Then, he studied painting at the Académie Anquetin with Mrs Versini in Neuilly and entered the studio of painters Paul Berton and Christian Welter in Paris. He also frequents the studio of sculptor Henry Murail. Currently, he works with dry pastel and knife painting, which brings a lot of freshness to the colours, a beautiful and generous material and a dynamic and sure gesture of the line.
In 1979, he led a drawing academy in Vernon and in 1981, founded the association ART VISUEL and directed the VISUAL ART SCHOOL for 13 years, bringing together more than 100 students in plastic and graphic arts workshops. He teaches drawing techniques and oil painting. In 1982, he organized the exhibition "IMAGES D’HOMME" in Vernon, bringing together about a hundred quality artists. Then, in 1984, he created the 1st Salon de Vernon in collaboration with the city and organized it until 1996. In 1984, he participated in the creation of a 50 m2 mural painting for the Chapelle St Jean-Baptiste in Vernon (collective work with Gobenceaux and De Dreux-Brézé). As part of the 900th anniversary of the death of William the Conqueror, he painted for the City of Vernon a 20 m by 2 m painting (the Fall of Icarus) displayed in the Dungeon in June and July 1987. Artist registered at the Maison des Artistes since 1989. Member of the Society "Art du pastel en France". President of the Atelier Renaissance association in Vernon from 2003 to June 2008.
