I was born in Monaco and raised in the small village of Eze on the French Riviera. After obtaining my Medical Degree in Brussels, Belgium, I studied several years in the United States towards my PhD in Science. I worked as a doctor and a scientist in Belgium, the US, and the Republic of the Congo. I was completely embedded in academia and then I had a chance encounter with Californian artist Cathe Grawin. Thus, I discovered the world of painting, and never had another thought about my CV. 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". I now stroll the paths of light and color, meeting thousands of artists along the way.
