I say it’s simply my way of painting I’m not in this or that category (style), j I discovered painting at the age of 22 as a way of expression and occupation in an association in Albi, where there was a workshop of expression of artistic painting, the animator had proposed to me if I wanted tried, at first I hesitated because I did not know anything in the art! Without really wanting and without knowing I accepted, suddenly I took a little taste it invaded or sucked, because I hated to stayed idle so I had to find an occupation or a job. I was encouraged by a lot of people and about all the employees of this association, they found that my painting and one of a kind? because it cleared something strong and touching at the same time, and it’s greasy also to a lot of other outside people who encouraged me to keep painting, since I continued to this day, in 2009 I attracted the attention of a great English professor of international art, Mr Francis Pratt, who has an art school in Castelnau de Montmiral in the Tarn, so I offered free internships! to integrate his school, I accepted but provided not changed my way of expression, he was in agreement.
