C & rsquo; is 2011 at 41 years that life has decided that all n & rsquo; s going to happen as I & rsquo; had planned for the coming years.. J & rsquo; s going to be torn away from my perfect life “big, child, House, dream work and living environment (in hindsight) “. A groundswell m & rsquo; causes the middle of the & rsquo; ocean , very far from the shore and cut me from the world of normal people, of healthy well ! The verdict : metastatic breast cancer emblem of mediastinum and lung. In 3 weeks j & rsquo; did 10 000 examinations blood tests my first chemo and I have no more hair.
Welcome to the wonderful world of & rsquo; Oncology.

I fight. Since the departure I know that the battle will be tough : j & rsquo; have the right to total, chemotherapy, mastectomy, axillary dissection, radiotherapy, injection & rsquo; antibody and hormone therapy. My desire is primarily to resume my life as before and in my mind it n & rsquo; n & rsquo in, not otherwise. I take my work confident a year after these events thinking be stabilized but I'm a first recurrence….
s & rsquo; & rsquo strung up treatment; a second relapse in May 2017.


There c & rsquo; is the shock, cancer cells are still there and I am finally aware after 6 years that I & rsquo; had cancer ” chronic”, for life…. I'm at the foot of the new wall treatments heavy, terrible side effects, I am very angry j & rsquo; have a lot of resentment in me. J & rsquo; did all that & rsquo; it m & rsquo; said to do, j & rsquo; took all the medications that & rsquo; it m & rsquo; said to take and is the result : the beast. I finally realized that I will not go take my life as before, I can not work as before, I'm not in shape as before, I can not drive as before, I can not party like before!!!

So I bailed in painting my initial training in visual arts. From figurative painting I started to create abstract paintings. I had need touch of matter, to develop forms, create tables in movements… almost a desire and a visceral need to create living works.

Everywhere we are told to have never touched a work of art… me I want the people's desire to touch my paintings! They Relief, they are designed so that we can feel the material and thus appropriating.
I only work on cotton canvas with acrylic pure. Always the same procedure : 3 dominant tones and positioning movements ….

The viewer is taken to find his own interpretation emotional when he looks so my job.
No directive, no figurative : no influence imposed compulsorily guides the interpretation of a work. I want everyone to take ownership of the work I book him with his sensitivity and history. I want my paintings come to life on the walls.
Create calms me. I work a lot when I suffer it is a way of channeling and analyzing my pain. Sometimes I also work at night…. it is also very interesting…I let you discover some pictures and videos of my work.
