Passionate since childhood by drawing, light, color; I chose to study Interior Architecture at the Institut St Luc de Bruxelles, photography at the Brussels School, and sculpture at Atelier 340 in Jette.


I approached Painting more than 30 years ago by attending the workshop of the late Henri Van Eepoel, the studio of Hughes Renier, the workshops of Etyen Wery and Mireze Aerts at the Ecole des Arts in Uccle and to this day, the workshop of Patrick Michiels in Monumental Painting.

I paint for pleasure, for conviction. I draw from it both serenity, calm, sobriety and at the same time action, letting go, freedom of expression, where you just have to be in agreement with yourself, just listen to yourself .
