Je suis artiste plasticienne pluridisciplinaire. Graphiste et photographe dans la publicité et pour divers éditeurs, j'ai développé en parallèle, un travail plus artistique avec la peinture et l'illustration. Mon travail est aujourd'hui principalement photographique, utilisant à la fois la retouche, la manipulation et l'art numérique..
I'm a visual artist, born in France,
After five years of art studies, I started my career as a graphic designer in advertising and then as an illustrator and photographer for various publishers. . Working in parrallèlle with an art dealer, and many galleries, I finally preferred the solitude of the studio allowed me a most important artistic development with the illustration and painting.
In 2005, I had the chance to travel for several years in the world with a fabulous circus. This allowed me to return to my first passion, photography.
Back to France, I continue with this support for different occasions, including digital art.
My work is now mostly photographic, using both the photo, the retouching, the manipulation and digital art
I like to capture moments and I want to take the ideas that sometimes arise, often astonishing and unexpected an object or place. For me photography is just a way to collect material to realize the ideas in my mind. It is a support. I am inspired by things around me in my daily life and all kinds of things I see.
My mixed media technique begins with the manipulation of my original photography collaged onto acrylic painted canevas or paper, blended within layers of colorful acrylic washes.
