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. After getting masters’s degrees in French as a foreign language and Philosophy, I came to the USA –by way of Cambodia between 1992 and 1994, to teach at the International School of Boston. It is when I decided to specialize in linocuts and woodcuts, mainly by lack of proper studio space.
Photography, which I had always used as a visual travel log, became the base of my work.
I am represented in private and public collections in Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Ecuador, England, France, Italy, Japan, Norway, Sweden, and the USA.
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. It is as simple as that
