I spent my childhood in total nature at my father’s commercial nursery in eastern France. Later, I started traveling around the world and discovered so many surreal places. I realized that nature is the best artist.
In my work I am creating an interaction of colors and shapes which is always changing in different lights. As in nature, the closer you look, the more abstract details will be discovered. By using my own weaving technique in most of my paintings and sculptures and, by using webbing paint in others, I attempt to recreate the interweaving that you find in nature.
Everything is connected.
