Professional Career

After four years of study with the painter Ted Seth Jacobs, I understood the work of light on form, as analyzed by the Ancients. Thanks to the painter Claude Yvel, I got to know the products, the pigments of yesteryear. I paint in the vein of trompe l'oeil and hyperrealism.

Artistic approach

The technique I use is very traditional: I paint with oil, I grind my pigments, and I use mediums of my own making. I start from a very traditional charcoal drawing.
precise, by successive layers of paint, bound together, to finish with very transparent glazes.
Intimately linked to the world around me and legatee of an ancient and perfect technique, I am constantly torn between the desire to describe the beauty of what surrounds us, and the will to express ideas, dreams, aspirations. I try to link the two: so I use a lot of poetry or allegories to sublimate what I represent.
