Word from the artist
''My passions are movement, color, rythm and emotions. My artwork is parallel , complementary and bipolar. I like the contrast of the density and the relief of my oil painting and the delicacy of the fascinating transparency of the water medium. My aim is to evocate states of being, emotions, by playing with colors and movement.''
