I run a little serenity factory. Painting watercolor in my studio, I apply old techniques such as those of Sargent or Winslow. With oil, I love to prepare a dough “à la Monet” for textures; to start a very faded painting as Renoir used to create; or to work with the luminous glazes of old painters. This wealth of knowledge that my fine arts teachers have passed on to me has made me the artist that I have become. I am convinced that it is only by mastering our art that we can communicate an emotion. I work at it every day. In my serenity factory.
