I live and paint in the Die area in the Rhônes-Alpes. My visual environment is bathed by the marked contrasts and intense colours of the grandiose landscapes in this area in the south of France. The contrast between wild, raw nature and the areas where humans have made their mark with buildings, vineyards and fields is my principal source of inspiration. But I am also inspired to express the movement and strength of men and women at work as well as still life. My paintings are on a grand scale to represent the high mountains so characteristic of the Diois.
