'Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead where there is no path. And leave a trail.'
For me, painting has always been a means of expressing the fluctuations of my heart and soul. I started painting to express my love , I went on because I had lost this love, I painted and gave birth to a beautiful child,I painted to express the beauty of the sea, the song of the wind in the trees.
Painting is now at the center of my life, I paint to express the vibrant emotions I feel when I look. I paint because I love the song of nature.
Brought up in Brittany by the Atlantic ocean, I have lived for the last 25 years in the South of France on the mediterranean coast, where the Spanish side of my family settled before I was born.
My work is strongly influenced by these contrasting cultures and landscapes, by the reds of Spain, the greens of Scotland, where I have lived for three years,the moving beauty of brittany France and the colors of the south of France.
I have studied and learnt drawing and painting with Elizabeth Raymond, First Prize Beaux Arts de Paris, who runs an Art School in the south of France. However, I have experimented the textures and colors on my own , and with other artists, I have decided to start selling my work in 2006, when a gallery dealer from London, passing by with friends in my house in Provence, encouraged me to do so. My aim is now to be able to paint as much as I can , experiment materials an textures wherever I find myself in the world.
I now live in the South of England ,Forest Row, near Ashdown Forest.
