I have painted Silk for the last twenty years. It is a noble material, whose iridescent appearance and diversity of fabrics I particularly appreciate. Colours merge and mix almost magically.
I also practice Textil art, which I learned from a fellow artist in Douai.
Starting with various natural or synthetic fibres, and of course my own painted silks, I cut, sow, fuse and transforme, in short I embellish..
I divert materials from their original use and create new fabrics which become Panels, Pictures or Handbags in many sizes
I also create Patchwork with my painted silk or also with cotton or furnishing fabrics.
The panel at the top of this page belongs to a "Courtepointe" made from painted silk of many different kinds.
I live and work in France, near Brest at the western tip of the Brittany region
