Ma créativité

My creativity

Since my childhood, very young I loved drawing. I guess it was to make new friends. I wasn't trying to copy exactly but just let my creative thoughts draw a few things that would resemble a more or less familiar shape. Drawing for me was a kind of escape from solitude.

I remember painting a mural during my years at technical high school. It was at the home, I had painted an extract from 101 Dalmatians while my friends painted more Rock'n Roll works. But why the 101 Dalmatians, but because I mastered the form; the stroke of the pencil.

Many years passed and here I am following a back operation that I discovered watercolor. It was in 1988.

I bought my first Rafael brushes, which I still have, and my first pans of extra fine watercolor from Winsor and Newton. I am improving and becoming more and more interested. I almost learn on my own. I am a pure autodidact. I paint for myself and for my friends, my family.

1993, I went to work in England and stayed there for a while. The years pass very quickly but I still continue with watercolors.

2017, I decided to take the plunge and show my watercolors to a wider audience. I am still in England and I am exhibiting for the first time at an exhibition organized in an old train station. I am very proud of my adventure.

Over the years, I have continued this exciting adventure. I research new techniques used in watercolor by contemporary master watercolorists.

Due to personal reasons; I'm back in France at the end of 2020. We are in the middle of COVID. I'm moving in the middle of COVID. From one week to the next, Great Britain and France are paralyzed again.

September 2021, after contracting COVID, I exhibited my works in a gallery in Entre-deux-mer in Monségur.

I met quite a few artists, more particularly I became friends with Marina Desportes and Annabelle de Miras.

We exhibit together with the gallery and then without the gallery.

June 2022, we have our first exhibition at the Citadel of Blaye in Gironde, France. From there, my adventure as an artist continues. I've been living in France for three years and so, I'm quite proud of my more or less chaotic and very exciting journey as an artist.
