I was born in Marseille France ,the south of France . picturesque, Provence but there is more than that!with the warm climate come the kindness of the people ,the infinite Summers ,and being submerged in colors every seasons
the delightful foods , the enchanting lavender hills ,the perfect palette wine .
and much more ,Growing up ,surrounded by nature ,and many Friends Artists ,potters , sculptors, painters , Musicians . it was inevitable to take on the brushes and and learn to paint in the" Ecole des arts" in Avignon,. Then took on the brushes again at the small private school in south western Connecticut for 4 years in the Community Art center with some wonderful teachers and masters ,where I lived and worked in 1987 /2002.
my style is improving over the years ,I have strong influence from the French masters like Paul Gauguin ,Van Gogh ,Cezanne , .I try to be in between the impressionists and the modern painting , I use ecologic oil witch does not uses heavy VOC's ,I also do collages which is more of a modern expressionist style , I would like everyone to afford my paintings ,
I think Art should be for everyone .
