“Throughout my childhood, it was in the observation of nature that I found the path to liberation: transforming suffering in beauty. Finding in the study of life the power to go beyond what was dead. My aim is to convey the energy and strength that I find in the nature. I abandon myself to this nature by seeking to capture its essence by constant and meticulous observation.
I sketch tirelessly in the squares, the parks, on the roadside, in front of the sea. I go through my memories to bring back turquoise blues of Polynesia, the bright colors of tropical flowers, African laterite. I then let this flow invade me to rebuild the large structures, the key elements and the detail of the painting. The result connects to emotions, “your painting is a medicine”, “your painting gives me strength”, ” I had a cancer and in your painting I regain the momentum of life felt after my remission “. To share the path to happiness to get out of suffering: that’s what I bring. “
