Ecole d'art, Atelier Albers, 1980
École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-arts de Paris
At age 20 I moved to Paris and studied at Atelier Albers for two years, a school that prepares pupils who wish to join any of the major Art and Decoration schools in France. The classes were taught by two painters and an architect...
Simultaneously I discovered psychology, psychoanalysis and Sophrology in which I took a great interest. I chose this profession and was a psychotherapist in Paris for over 25 years.
I continued to draw and paint, went to fine arts school in Auxerre, Burgundy. I have a country house there. 10 years of happy exploration... and a lot of personal work.
I ended my therapist career in 2006 at age 51 to become a full time professional artist. I started a new life and concentrated on my passion for painting.
