Graduate of the superior school of applied arts Duperré in 1985, I live and work between Paris and Provence.
From my travels - from Tokyo to The Habana, from the streets of Paris to the sea bed of The Maldives - I bring back sketchbooks, pads of notes, drawings and collages: hispanic or contemporan architectures, faces reminding those of Piero Della Francesca, enigmatic objects non identified...
These spontaneous sketchbooks give rise to unique pieces and editions
painting, textile, porcelain, cloisonné...
THE FASHION FOUNDATION of Tokyo and FREDERIC DE LUCA of the gallery EN ATTENDANT LES BARBARES in Paris were the first ones to exhibit my unique pieces from 1989.
Then I meet some editors and craftsmen with exceptional know-how as well in Limoges, Paris, Provence as in the borders of Mongolia. The opportunity to match the talents and the technical requirements, to share a common experience far from my workshop.
Since 1996 ASIATIDES offers me the opportunity to experiment specific techniques in Thaïland and in China : the porcelain - painted, engraved, "grain of rice"..., the engraved glass and mostly the cloisonné.
In 2008 I work with THE ARTS OF FASHION FOUNDATION of San Francisco to pass on some of my experience to some young designers of the whole world.
Since 2009, 1 month a year, I participate in the research of the COMITE FRANCECLAT in Paris, professional development commitee of watchmaking, jewellery, silverware and tableware.
In 2015 the gallery TEO LEO in Paris invites me to show my new unique pieces.
I like to play with anchronisms and correspondences, to match colors patches and precison of the observation, to mix austerity and humor, rigour and spontaneity.
