I am a french professionnal painter. All my artworks are original pieces, direct from my studio in Touraine. I am interested with creating IMAGES : landscapes, forests, flowers, human figure, still life, male and female nudes, abstraction. My artworks are rather figuratives. Main time, I am in an interpretation process. But I also work from photographies, in a photorealistic way. Imagination, dream, fantasy or memory, never mind : I am looking for the poesy. And also, sometimes, I let explode some seriousness, some mystery. That's life. I use a lot of technics on canvas and paper : oil, watercolor, ink, watersoluble pencils, acrylic, acrylic markers, colored pencils, mixed media, spray parkers, oil markers... I like graphism in the painting. And glazes too ! I often use transparent colors. I am very interested by the richness of transparency in the painting. The old glazes oil technic is now available due to beautiful high quality acrylics. Art is an endless exploration !
