I have been painting since the age of 10, and am essentially self-taught. I work in all mediums –
watercolour, gouache, oil, acrylic and mixed media, but I love the depth of oils for portraiture and for capturing the vibrancy of floral compositions. I like to set time aside for engraving, and am fortunate to have the use of a press for producing my own prints.
My 3-dimensional art extends to sculpture, pottery and jewellery. I enjoy designing and producing all kinds of tableware, vases and ornaments in both ceramics and stoneware, but I have a particular fondness for raku– which demands a more complicated production and firing process.
I was born in Mauritius (my mother was Mauritian and my father French) but we moved to the UK when I was 3 and I grew up in London – where I first exhibited my work. I made a permanent
move to France in 2001 and from my studio in Yvelines I mounted a number of exhibitions in the Paris area. Attracted by the colours of the Mediterranean I moved to Languedoc-Roussillon in 2009 and now live in Céret, close to the Spanish border, home to many artists over the years.
