Ma formation en histoire de l’art, mes premières armes à l’atelier du Musée d’Art Moderne de Villeneuve d’Ascq et le Centre d’Art à Lille ont façonné ma démarche picturale. Ma peinture est un long cheminement entre les vaines contraintes de l’imitation et une abstraction trop aride. Cette confrontation oriente mon regard sur le monde qui reste la source de mon inspiration. La palette se doit alors d’être resserrée pour arriver à l’essentiel et laisser libre cours à une ...

Une douceur qui invite à un voyage au travers des 4 saisons dans un tourbillon de couleurs et de formes.
