Contact with nature has always been all-important to me. Probably due to the rural origins of my maternal grandparents but also the strong passion my parents had for horse riding; it’s thanks to them I grew up horse riding in the woods!
I’ve always lived in close contact with nature and still do, it always gives me so much and above all, it teaches me a lot… it gives me a boost of strength, of happiness with its explosion of colours, it gives me the courage to deal with fear and also teaches me to have the right amount of “sound wickedness” needed for survival…however it also gives me wisdom, sensitivity, simplicity and tenderness.We should always have great respect for nature.
It shows in my artworks, with all its strong contrasts of shape and colour with the use of action painting, I try to portray that life and that continual movement that distinguish it. Very often I also capture its most abstract impressions and it has a multitude of them; even the simplest flower can transmit a special magical abstract and tell its story… just as a galloping horse can become an expression of such elegance and such harmony that is incomparable.
