Biography

I spent my early years in Rambervillers, a small town in Les Vosges (France)

In 1984, after a two years sabbatical devoted to study many forms of visual art at Ecole de l’Images in the nearby town of Epinal, I started to exhibit oils, acrylics, and etchings. I came to the USA in 1994 –by way of Cambodia between 1992 and 1994, to teach French as a foreign language and philosophy at the International School of Boston. It is also when I decided to specialize in linocuts and woodcuts, mainly by lack of proper studio space.

Photography, which I had always used as a visual travel log, became the base of my work. This work is not intended to describe particular places, but the ideas related to them, and my short stories, philosophico-humoristic takes on everyday life, follow the same trend.

I am represented in private and public collections in Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Ecuador, England, France, Italy, Japan, Norway, Sweden, and the USA.

Artist Statement

II like the little things of life, the spectacle of nature, the lines and shapes of the world. I use them to create images, to map voyages, to share impressions. If you think my work is colorful, warm, and a bit mysterious, if it makes you smile, or travel, or imagine, if you want to take it home with you, I have reached my goal.
