In my abstract paintings, I like to evoke feelings of freedom, liveliness and transformation.
Through hyper color contrast and dynamic composition, I try to create movement and instability on my canvas. I thrive on spontaneity, and value adaptability and flexibility. I have developed two styles of painting: impressionistic and non-representational abstract. I almost never use a paint brush and work almost solely with painting knives and other tools like squeegees. Armed with my fancy squeegee and various painting knives, I like to create colorful imaginary forests and landscapes in oil, acrylic or watercolor.
I was born and raised in France but my father was from Nicaragua, a country I have visited numerous times. I presently live in the Washington, DC.
2022 has been a very special year for me. I decided to take a semester away from teaching and dedicate my entire time to painting. I believe that since the beginning of 2022, because of the ability to paint every single day, I have made tremendous progress in my painting skills.
