After eclectic studies in Art, Art History and Decorative Arts, I have pursued a career as a professional painter for forty years, taking part in numerous group and solo exhibitions.For the last fifteen years, I have opened my own studio where I teach classical drawing, oil painting, pastel and now botanical art.
In 2016, while taking a diploma in ethnobotany,I discovered the world of botanical art and dropped everything else!
I am mostly interested in wild plants but also, as an ethnobotanist, in fruits and vegetables. I pay careful attention to composition, sticking to accuracy in the coloured parts and taking liberties in the clear lines to balance the composition and underline the focal point.
In 2018, I had three drawings selected by the SFIB for the Worldwide Exhibition. Since then, I have illustrated books, films and advertising campaigns. My works have been shown in different countries among which England, Belgium, South Korea and the USA.
