When I remember my childhood, the first thing that comes in my mind is drawing and painting activities with my parents, my brother and my sister. It was a serious work beside classic school duty. Paper, pencils and other material were available everywhere at home. Of course it was so fun when we used to compare our “masterpieces”!

At school I remember having pretty good results. My teachers, hopefully, encouraged me. While I grew up, opportunities for drawing competitions made me get trust in me. It became definitely a kind of therapy. Rather shy, I used to express my feelings through my paintings. Fortunately, people appreciated my work and often showed me that I had minimum talent to hang and keep practicing seriously. Basic techniques were necessary. I took courses in order to enhance my abilities.

Once we became adults, my sister and I decided to participate to exhibitions.
These kinds of experiences were so constructive. In December 2006 we organized an exhibition called “triangular pallet” with our mother. It will stay a memorable period.

Before this event, I participated to three exhibitions in 2005, another one in 2006 and two in 2008. My painting style evolved considerably. I slowly slipped towards acrylic technique on canvas. My ambition pushed me to work on large sizes frames. They had a large success. Today, I feel more mature; I am more convinced that painting must take an important place in my life. It is question of inward balance and ambition. I am ready to work hard in order to enhance quality of my artworks. I plan to work with special themes and create collections.

Arts and painting are still an efficient therapy whatever my life would be.
