about the artist
My work concentrates on powerful, emotional moments in time – human snapshots. Through very energetic and sensual strokes, I express my love of paint and colour, celebrating people and emotions.
Joy, pain, passion, happiness, reflection, intensity, restlessness – I celebrate it all with a fury of colours that fuse, clash, appear and disappear, in a dance that I would relate to the volatility of our emotions, which I endlessly explore. I find the infinite possibilities of colour combination as fascinating as the palette of emotions human beings can display and I strive to convey both in my work.
My works are raw and visceral, the product of instinct rather than intellect. I am very sensitive to my surroundings – colours, sounds, people and most of all music; every cue, whether visual, aural or emotional, has a colour to me and I try translating it all onto the canvas without the distraction of a thought process.
I also particularly enjoy the process, the physicality of painting and hopefully, it transpires in the end result.
French-born, I studied art in Paris before embarking on a successful career in advertising in the UK. After 11 years in the UK, I moved to Australia in 2004 and have been living in Melbourne since. I have had solo and group shows in France, England and Australia and my work is represented in private collections in the Europe, North and South America, Asia and Australia.
