AT HOME AT GIVERNY
As a child I used to play in Monet's garden with my friends! The site was abandoned and looked wild. We sneaked through the fence and loved playing hide and seek in the bamboo grove... until the curator Mr Gerald Van der Kemp arrived !
HOW I STARTED PAINTING
I've always loved painting and was attracted by Chinese art, so I took Chinese Calligraphy courses given by a Master. I had to repeat and repeat endlessly the same patterns... Then I started painting flowers in " Chinese painting free style ", a very subtle way of painting, still supervised by the Master.
I FIND MY OWN STYLE
Thanks to practicing a lot my own style emerged, a combination of Chinese painting and the beauties of French landscapes. I lay out Chinese Inks and watercolors on natural rice or bamboo paper with Chinese traditional brushes.
