Art, my life, my way of life…

 

At the age of 32, I realise that, as far as I remember, art has always been a major part of my life. 

 

From childhood through to adulthood, I have taught myself different forms of art such as drawing, dancing, acting, painting and fashion design. 

 

After passing the European baccalaureate at the age of 17, I continued my studies in higher education in languages, tourism then project management. 

 

Although literary, my curriculum has never hindered me from my passion.

 

It was only at the age of 25 that I attempted sand-paintings, in order to assist a non-profit organisation to raise funds for young people. 

 

As a result of all the encouragement and support received for this work, I decided to completely be devoted to this activity. 

 

From that moment, I understood that Art was my essence, my mode of expression and I started considering it as a profession.

 

From then on, sponsored by the renowned painter Alain Caprice, I took part in several contests and numerous exhibitions on my Native Island but also abroad -Washington-.

 

I am delighted at the richness of the human interaction and artistic exchanges generated by my many encounters. I remain deeply convinced that I haven't finished learning about art, sand and life...
