I was born in Monaco and grew up in the small village of Eze on the French Riviera. After obtaining my Medical Degree in Belgium, I spent several years in the United States working towards my PhD in Science. My professional career was conducted in Belgium, the US, and the Republic of the Congo.

Thanks to a chance encounter with late Californian artist Cathe Grawin, I discovered the world of painting. Cathe was able to unearth talent in the most pedestrian budding artist and to instill self-confidence in her students. I will always carry with me her favorite quote "Not every piece is a masterpiece, and thank God for the gesso".
