I am a self-taught author-photographer.
I worked for a long time as teacher.
Passionate about the arts, I turned from painting to photography in 2006.
Lines, color, and light have always appealed to me.
Graphic design, minimalism, solid color blocks but also blurs and vibrations characterize my work and my research.
By attempting to interpret my environment, I like to create connections between the two art forms of painting and photography.
To this end, I am always looking for new experiences to capture and I am fascinated by picture processing.
For me, editing a picture is akin to the work of a painter.
Among the artists I like and that influence my photography work one can name William Turner, Mark Rothko, Auguste Macke,
Georges Braque, Paul Cézanne, Nicolas de Staël.
