MY CURRENT THEME : MUSES

Since 2010, my creative and exploratory process as an artist has been oriented towards the theme of Women, as creative forces, as all-powerful feminine icons, and finally, as heroines. My sources of inspiration are legends, myths and the classical muses.

Women deserve to be honored, respected and supported.

Trips to Rome, Venice and Florence these past several years heightened my desire to paint and draw Women in all their grace, beauty and wonder.

My Muses are createdd using the same techniques as I use for my abstracts and grapes : drawing, painting and engraving. I believe that all of the discoveries that I made painting grapes for so many years (palettes of harmonious colors, the use of light and calligraphic gesture, plus the old Masters painting techniques) definitely help to enhance these new works.
