Former Marine who made 2 trips around the world on the helicopter carrier 'Jeanne d'Arc' (French Navy) I am retired. Self-taught watercolorist I participated in numerous exhibitions and fairs in the summer many competitions of 'painters in the street' in my area of South west France.
The subjects I paint are recognizable because I speak rendered 'paint' and not photography quality. The color is the dominant part expressive in my creations .... I evolve into semi figurative suggestion taking precedence over reality. As a former Marine I would like to keep the water with an accomplice, a major intervention in my watercolors!
My strong passion for watercolor combined with the taste of discovering nature and heritage, led me to the world of travel books (2 including a completed published) Currently being my 3rd book on my travels around the world .....
Other areas of passion: archeology, hiking, graphic design, photography, mysticism,
