Artistic approach

"I have always considered that there were two necessary components to the elaboration of a work: firstly, inspiration, and secondly, technique or knowledge of the craft, either innate or acquired. As for imagination, it is above all a question of a permanent research aiming at taming one's dreams while letting one's thoughts run free.
My commitment to art is above all an act of love towards Dream and Beauty. For me, visionary, imaginary and dream painting is more than a fashion, it is a current that has crossed the centuries, and it doesn't matter if we, painters, are not part of the so-called contemporary art, so much the better, because to be timeless is to be free, and it is in the margin that we will find the future of Art”.
