Artist Bio

I spent my early years in Rambervillers, a small town in Les Vosges (France).

In 1984, after a two years sabbatical devoted to study many forms of visual art at Ecole de l’Images in the nearby town of Epinal, I started to exhibit oils, acrylics, and etchings. I came to the USA in 1994 –by way of Cambodia between 1992 and 1994, to teach French as a foreign language and philosophy. It is when I decided to specialize in linocuts and woodcuts, mainly by lack of proper studio space at the time. Photography, which I had always used as a visual travel log, became the base of my work.

My work is not intended to describe particular places, but the ideas related to them.

I like the little things of life, the spectacle of nature, the lines and shapes of the world. I use them to create images, to map voyages, to share impressions. I want my prints to be colorful, warm, and a bit mysterious. It should make you smile, travel, wonder, so you’ll want to take them home with you.

I am represented in private and public collections in Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Ecuador, England, France, Italy, Japan, Norway, Sweden, and the USA.

Materials and Techniques

I do woodcuts and linocuts (but printmaking is not an option above so I checked drawing) using blocks of wood or linoleum that I carve until I have an image in relief that I like. I then ink the relief and print it on paper to get my print. I use watercolors or colored pencils to add colors if I want some on the image..
