  • Biography

    I have always had a fascination for watercolours. With the idea that with water, pigments and paper one can replicate reality. I love the effects of granulation that watercolour pigments offer and the fact that the artist has a limited control over the flow and results obtained and has to learn to anticipate results and to be able to work with the "happy accidents" that always occur when painting with watercolour.

    I'm a figurative painter attracted by a variety of subject matters. Every day there seems to be something in my surroundings that captures my imagination and makes me want to translate that feeling/sensation onto paper.

    When working with still lives I try to find the beauty in ordinary objects. I enjoy isolating them from their usual settings and giving them the attention they do not usually receive.

    Live models I paint in a looser, free style, swiftly capturing the essential elements to produce dramatic figures. 

    A couple of years ago I joined the local Urban Sketchers group and we try to meet, once a week, weather permitting, to sketch on location. This has been very beneficial to me, I see the progress not only in my work but also in the way I look and perceive the world around me.

    Buchillon au Carré

    Second place prize at the exhibition in Buchillon, Switzerland. This exhibition takes place every two years and each artist has to present four artworks measuring 30 x 30 cm. This is the second time I win this prize, which makes me very proud, especially as the judges were not the same as last time.
