Over many years, in both Africa and Europe, I have developed my creativity in different artistic fields and now concentrate on painting in acrylic or oil. When, at the age of 20, I left my native Belgium to go and live in the Congo, I designed a line of ladies clothes, with painted designs, on different materials. I then opened my own serigraphy factory, making promotional goods for companies including Mercedes, Renault, Mitsubishi and Mobil Oil.   I loved Africa. I still do. The wild nature, the animals running free, the culture, the colours. It has had a great influence on me as a person and in my artistic evolvement. Indeed, the Great Outdoors is my greatest source of inspiration. I love warm colours and harmony.   In 2000, I moved to Provence in the South of France, where I took lessons in painting on porcelain and making mosaics. I received commissions for clients in a number of countries.   I then turned to painting. I studied under a Belgian artist who has exhibited around the World and who believed in me.   My main studio is in Provence, but I also have a studio in London.   My paintings have principally been displayed in Provence and the Cote d’Azur, including Ste Maxime, Draguignan, Villecroze, Callas and Le Muy.”
