I was born in 1970, Savoie/France. I grew up in the countryside, on the first foothills of the Chartreuse mountains (Savoie Alpes France) steeped in skies, mountain landscapes and lakes of Savoie.

I’m painting for 30 years, I realized my first personal works between my teenage years and adulthood. (mother was a graphic designer - Decorative Arts of Geneva, 63’ Class)

Advertising Director, Graphic Designer - Line-Up Agency

Qualified in advertising, taking courses in visual expression, color, and Art history. 


I define myself as a regionalist 2.0 with warm and cold, eye-catching colors, between dark and high light. 
A new way to re-discover exotism from the surroundings, just open the eyes or doors, elsewhere is everywhere! I developed a big attraction for trees, pines, firs, forests, hills, clearings, cliffs, ridgelines, silhouettes, skylines, small villages, and barns.

My acrylic paintings are made on several supports: canvas, wood panel, or cardboard.


Influenced by the Viennese and American School, William TURNER, the Pre-impressionists, the Impressionists, the Nabis; the School, and the mountain painters from my home region, Savoie.

I made lots of trips at south of France, discovery of the Provence, Causses, Cévennes, Drôme Provençale, Alpilles, Luberon, Alpes de Haute-Provence, and those landscapes and lights.

Also at other alpine areas: Switzerland, Austria, Voralberg Tyrol, SüdTyrol, Salzkammergut between lakes and mountains,

Northern Italy and Germany: Black Forest, Bad Würtemberg, Bavaria.


Hypersensitive from birth, I gained an even more intense outlook on life, following the very early loss of childhood friends and both my parents when I was in my thirties.

Contemplative, sensitive by nature, captive to the image, lover of road trips, or running into the wild, blues music. And a great fan of vintage cars letting the landscape unfold at its own pace…


My mantra is: "It's better to live with memories than regrets".

My main paradox: "To choose is to give up; but as I sometimes find it hard to choose, I never give up."
