I have been a painter for over 30 years and started to draw and produce Art at the age of four. I raised three beautiful children and traveled extensively in Switzerland, Italy, and India. Over the years, I resided both in France and in the United States and even india for some years. My work is now hanging in several private museums and castles in US and abroad. . I am painting many themes all mostly with figures or landscapes. Most of my paintings are small oil paintings but there are plenty of larger ones too .The work is charming and varied and will look good in your home or office. To create my paintings I use oils I grind myself into tubes. I also make my own Maroger mediums (two different ones: the Rubens jelly medium and the Titian wax medium). This allows colors to give my canvas a sense of vibrancy. Some of my paintings have more apparent brush strokes than others, which I really enjoy to show. The approach I take is that I paint the entire composition first. I then build my shapes on that solid foundation. I always make sure there is balance throughout my composition. My work has and will continue to involve landscapes figures, adolescence, and refreshing imagery, as well as spiritual themes. This is part of who I am.
At present I am focusing on loosening up my style and introducing palette knife work in my pieces. My trend is figures in landscapes, harmony of colors and paying more attention to the subtle emotions behind the paint.
