Born in France in 1954 in Valence, Haute-Provence, I started painting and exhibiting at the age of 30, in a small town in eastern France. This is where I learned to develop my personal technique combining the use of an airbrush and a brush on canvas and cardboard to paint.

After a few years of practice, I participated in some exhibitions during various artistic events. Then, in 1987, I left Europe to settle in the suburbs of Montreal where I exhibited my paintings in various circles of painters and during exhibitions in Montreal.

Self-taught in fantasy painting, I continue to explore different themes close to my heart: the parallel worlds of fairies, angels, elementals, which I have been making since 2012 in digital painting, on a tablet with a pressure-sensitive screen.
