About Me

Introduction

I’m a French Canadian artist actually living in a suburb of Montreal with my life companion and my son.

As far as I remember, creativity has always been part of my life. Over the years, it has manifested itself in various forms such as visual arts, crafts, writing, scenography and even the creation of websites.

In spite of this, for twenty years, life has diverted me from this fundamental drive during which time I devoted myself to personal growth, alternative and energetic medicine and the spiritual dimension of the human being.

Since 2011, the deep rooted creative impulse has resurfaced and reunited me with my old friend … painting.

Artist Statement

Consciousness, exploration, pleasure and evolution are fundamental to my artistic approach which expresses itself through abstract and semi-abstract paintings created with various mediums like the acrylic, oil, ink and digital .

Abstract painting and semi-abstract painting are distancing me from reality by creating imaginary worlds in which I travel emotionally with my senses. The movement, shapes, colors and textures transport me.

I’m looking for a state of balance between the intuitive and the rational mind, between the spontaneous and the conscious gestures while listening to the present moment, my inner universe and the emerging artwork.

Current Exploration

At the moment, I dedicate myself to oil and cold wax painting on translucent polyester film or wood, as well as acrylic and India ink on Yupo paper.

With these different mediums and substrates, I explore the painting technique by addition and subtraction which allows me to create richly textured artworks giving the impression of being marked by the passage of time.

When painting, I constantly impose myself new challenges in order to go out of my comfort zone and progress. It’s one of the fundamentals in my creative process. As a result, my work is frequently redefined and evolves to the rhythm of those challenges.
