French artist painter born in Liévin (France, 1964). Self taught artist, I began oil painting in 1971. I discovered pleasures of oil painting when I was 30 years old, and the encounter of Jean-Pierre Sauvage was a milestone in my evolution. I became a member of the independant artists of Lens (France) in 2007, and then member of the independant artists of Liévin in 2008. I have been influenced by the french School at the end of XIXth et XXth century, and particularly by the School of Barbizon and the french impressionnists like Alfred Sisley or others like Joachim Sorolla. My interest also goes to the Russian artists like Isaac Levitan and Ivan Shishkin. My paintings are frequently in exhibition in region Nord-Pas-de-Calais.
