At the crossroads of painting and photography, I propose a rich artistic world in technical experiments
A native of Maine et Loire in france, I am a completely self-taught creator of images. Always attracted by the image, I work photographic techniques since the 90 .Works In my reign a dark and lyrical atmosphere that overwhelms us and leaves us more.
But above all I met Serge Gal, renowned photographer, which earned me a real awareness about my approach to my image and design capabilities. Drawing my inspiration from impressionists, surrealists and the Baltic photographers; it was from 1998 that I finally let my creativity run free. So I developed my personal aspirations while continuing to exhibit collectively.

It was at this time that I experimented with various designs and techniques that I discovered the particular media collage like an alchemist in his den.
