I grew up on the edges of the Loire, to observe the nature and to dream. Its long summers from Anjou in my garden fed my imagination and were certainly for the genesis of certain graphic projects. Of Angers where I have study in the School of Fine Arts, I came down along the river to Nantes where I lived for several years. Shop windows of the natural history museum and in the dust of old attics, I draw old pictures, that they are in the center of my subject or just used as vector of ideas and sense.
What stands out for you as one of your favourite career highlights so far?
The realization of the book ‘ Yvonne, l’enfant château ‘ for which I realized the images and the text. It was the first time which I wrote.
What are you currently working on?
I work on the suite of the book, a graphic novel.
How’d you get started as an artist?
I began after my studies. But I exercised other jobs as record dealer. I also went up a small publishing house and I also worked in a concert hall. Today my main activity is the drawing.
Who or what influences your art?
I was influenced by the work of the photographer Joël Peter Witking, the paintings of Caravagio and old natural history book.
What is your creative process like?
I document in books a lot or on the Internet. I make many sketches also. I like working alone in the peacefully of my studio.
How do you feel our Art + Brewing initiative can benefit emerging artists?
It is always interesting to work on different supports to touch other people who do not go forcing to exhibitions or other cultural places.
