Photographer / Painter / illustrator

Travels and creations, tavels on earth and imaginary travels; creations with pencils, photos, computer... Adolescent, the painter INIS makes me discover the oil painting in his studio in St Jean de Maurienne in Savoie. Later I leave to Lyon to follow a training of typographer, I also discover the photography with a friend who is a professional. A few years later I moved to Grenoble where I met the painter TRISTAN, with him I will learn the trompe-l'oeil, discover the technique of drawing in pencil, learn to watch, observe. The paintings of Salvatore Dali, Vasareli or Kandinsky inspire me as well as the extraordinary work of a great late architect, Zaha Hadid. As far as I can remember, I have always been attracted to travel, to draw, paint or photograph is to leave a trace of his journey, and it is also to enter an imaginary travel...
