About the Artist

I lived, studied and worked in Paris, London and the French Riviera where the arts and cultures allowed me to discover the legacy of museums and to paint with famous painters such as Liliane Lelouette, painter and president of the Painters of the Gulf of Saint-Tropez Association.   Thereby I’ve learnt to discover and capture the colours of nature and the art of living peculiar to each place.

I have chosen Pompadour to realise an original exhibition focusing on different breeds of horses and equine sports.   Familiar with Corrèze and riding horses since my childhood, I have gathered here at “La Galerie” my passion for horses and to share the many diverse equestrian activities in Pompadour – birthplace of the Anglo-Arabians since the establishment of the National Stud Farm in the 18th century.   My friends introduced me to equestrian arts such as dressage, carrousel, horse shows and competitions as well as races, and steeple-chases – all represented in my water-colours.
