    Artist Statement

    I have a passion for the ocean...in fact a passion for the mouvement, the light and the life. When I became a surfer exploring the coast and waves, I become a plein air painter. All those years of experience have shaped a vast world of images and sensations that constantly feed my painting. Living now both in Granville and Paris has enlarged my palet of actions with urban sceneries and landscapes, meanwhile keeping my oceanic world. I paint what I love, that's it simply. Plein Air painting is a pure happyness moment which bring you to paint the "live life"... be connected to the place, the atsmophere and the people. Using Watercolor medium is a natural way for me: as all life is related to water and its mouvement this is the perfect medium. I paint with passion and to have fun!
