After a first cycle at the Beaux-Arts, I started to exhibit collectively in 1991 during my studies in Paris at ESAG Penninghen.

We formed a group of three young visual artists who shared a common sensibility to drawing and matter, each with our own particular expression. An auctioneer friend of ours received us in her Paris apartment at various times in the course of private exhibitions.

One of my Penninghen professors, Roland Guillaumel (1950 First Second Grand Prix of Rome in Sculpture) has been one of the most important influences both from an academic point of view and as regards rigor of composition.

My early research was systematically conducted with gouache, hard Conté chalk on raw materials, especially wrapping paper wrinkled, marouflaged onto recycled wooden panels.

Sans titre IX (1991)

The use of such raw, extremely simple materials was reflected in my minimalist drawings or those permeated with nervous energy.

In the mid-90s, I focused on a professional career as an art director then a design consultant before resuming my quest for artistic expression in 2014. During a visit to the Tangent gallery in San Francisco in the spring of 2015, I discovered the work of Antonio Marra which had a trigger effect helping me to continue my quest.
