A self-taught artist, I am driven by curiosity and the aim  to bring clarity into our present life.

 

I was born in 1971 in Orthez, a small town set in South Western France between the Wine Country and the Pyrenees.

In 1994, I found a reel of pewter wire on the counter of my chemistry lab. I began shaping small decorative motifs with this wire, adhering them to Gesso covered wood panels. This craft making technique based on one-line drawing and also known as wire-art released instantly my bottled creativity.

This modest art form  gave me the liberty to develop and to finally create personal images that delve with a quiet and deep narrative into the world we live in.

The metallic line blends its clarity and its physicality to this narrative. Altogether they  make my work contrasts sharply with the shallowness and the frenzy of the images we get served daily through our flat screens.

Also driven by the desire to confront my sculptures/paintings to other cultures, I have worked between 2003 and 2006 with children around the world.
