Italy has been my land my home my inspiration and my training..
I was born in the south of France and
I grew up between Europe and the US ,a family of artists ,world travellers and dreamers.
I moved to Italy as a young adult with an artistic and walorf education training.
In 1991 I open my art studio in the heart of Tuscany , in San Gimignano where I work and live until 2012 and more
recently move to Firenze.
My study of colour, my research in materials ,my passion for the landscape and its fruits, all has evolved around transforming into an intimacy the beauty around me.

For years the lapis lazuli,ocher,and siena of Tuscan church frescoes have filled my canvas skies and landscapes like a coccon, “turned inside out”, the interior becoming the exterior, the experience of intimacy under the vaults that expands into the ezperience of Nature., made more of empty space than from filled
The three fundamental colors to express the living, visible world, transforming the moment of inspiration into an “expressionist” exhalation of the infinite that is the landscape, the tuscan landscape.
Poetry, emotions, happenings .. life works itself into my paintings: oil glazing, cutting , gilding, piecing the canvas into multiple macro worlds: large multipannels, woven and overlaped canvas, layered , stitched, embroydered, collaged, plastified...
Bizantine, symbolic, pop... my pomegranates and lemons are microcosms searching to become whole, containers of happiness, expression of plenitude and fulfillness.
Welcome into my world!
