My technique is liberally inventive ! I borrow from the world of fashion; gems, sequins, glitters and lace. Pearlised paint, playing cards, paper, stencil and transfers are used among other things for the crystallization of my breath and vitality on the canvas. I am a happy painter and I love colors ! ;) Through paint, I transpose with forceful energy the emotions experienced in life. With my art, I express states of mind, real or imagined - it is so good to dream - characterised by naivety, motion and color. Music is part of my creative process, it sometimes makes the paintbrush, or even the artist, move to its rythm ! According to the mood, the colors, the notes and the ispiration, the magic operates on a canvas which will never be the same.
