I paint flying creatures and vegetal portraits on paper with watercolours and other materials. I use collage with the objective of traveling into different dimensions spiritual and physical.

ARTIST BOOK MAKER
The artist book is, to me, a journey through a strange land with a walking compagnon.

RECIPE DEVELOPER
I have always had a passion for cooking and prehistory. It started as a child when I understood that food gathered in the wild held a truth that our distant ancestors would have known. Gathering and consuming today plants and berries that grew thousands of years ago bridges the gap between the past and present. What started as a game has become a passion enhanced with my theory that if our ancestors were able to create the cave paintings seen at the sites of Lascaux, Chauvet… with pigment, they were surely able to create a fine feast with “piment” (herbs) and other ingredients?
My “Mesolithic gastronomic evenings” have been sponsored by CONVIVIUM SLOW FOOD IN GENEVA.

SCIENCE ART COLLABORATOR
Where my eyes or knowledge is limited, working with scientists allows me to understand and interpret the Natural World beyond the visible. I am currently working on a number of diverse projects exploring viruses, bacteria, sempervivum and nanostructures found in flower petals.

GARDENER
My garden creations are characterized by symbolic themes with a choice of trees and shrubs growing at a time of the ancient world.
During 2020 I designed a number of gardens for friends under the eye of the blackbird, Head Gardener, who is not always in agreement with my plantations.
