Originally from France,I have been living in North Vancouver, Canada for the past 18 years.
I am very inspired by my Pacific west coast surroundings and I paint the BC landscape, figures and still life, mixing elements of drawing and patterning into my paintings.
My work has been collected and exhibited extensively in Canada and internationally. I am also part of the Art Rentals and sales program of the Vancouver Art Gallery.
Many of my paintings have been published in Art books and magazines (Artist Magazine, Watercolor Artist Magazine, Acrylic Magazine, International Artist Magazine). My second book with North Light/F+W Books will be available for sale in September 2018. I already published a watercolor instruction book: Fearless Watercolor for beginners, adventurous painting techniques to get you started.
I have been writing for the last 5 years for my blog: paintingdemos.com, that has a mailing list of about 10 000 subscribers and about 20 000 visitors per month.
I am an active member in the community, as a co-founder of the North Shore Art crawl, a co-founder of a weekly life drawing group, a board member of the North Vancouver Arts Council, and have been invited as a juror for public art, art grants and juried exhibitions.
