Botanical watercolor, a story of passion to share.
Having the feeling, after more than thirty years of work and doubt, that my watercolours live more, awaken a new look at the vegetable world and bring new emotions fills me with joy.
Revealing the secret life of my models, in their tiniest nuances, shadows and details, requires humility and self-denial in the face of the beauty of nature.
Transmiting these sensations with this requirement of precision and observation became obvious to me.
Teaching botanical watercolour now through courses and workshops organized in Lyon and also in further countries brings me a lot of satisfaction.
In short, my most beautiful reward today, sharing my experience as well as my know-how and painting, always...
