A self-taught artist, 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 also known as wire-art released instantly my bottled creativity.

This modest art form gave me the liberty to develop and led me to create images that delve with a quiet and deep narrative into the world we live in. The elegance and  physicality of the line in my work also contrasts with the shallowness and the frenzy of the images we get served daily through the media.

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