Biographie

I was born in Geneva and living in Versoix, a small city at the edge of the Lake Leman in Switzerland.

My creations are mainly drawings with pencils on paper supports. They are figurative subjects, beings often envolving/moving in base with gold sheets., with certain coloured parts.

Inspired by a mystical and symbolic tradition, my work is first of all a look turned inwards.
