I am a French and Quebecker artist who has lived in Wales since 2007.
I was instantly charmed by the landscapes and architecture of my new home: the green hills which fuse into the sea, the large Cardigan Bay, its cliffs and beaches of smooth pebbles, its trees which have been bent with the wind, the small whitewashed cottages with their roofs of Caernarvon slate, their small doors with colourful window frames. The local way of life is also an inspiration to me : the country folk, the fishermen, the housewives, those who live off the land, from the sea, and through their efforts and perseverance.
I mainly paint on wooden panels. My careful work draws on the natural world and the traditional Welsh way of life. I use very fine brushes while painting. Going for walks always provides new findings and is an inspiration to me. I lose myself amidst the wild plants and animals, the old cottages and ruins, the aspects and colours which are so unique to this beautiful part of the world.
I love working on textures, colours and patterns - my art brings me peace and serenity, and I hope it will bring it to you as well.
