To rub the misery and human degradation, we end up not
seeing the beauty of nature. It was a lack in my life.
I paint what
I see. The beauties of nature fascinate me. I can fall into a swoon at a little flower, a sunset, twilight blue
and I am moved to tears.
Paint meets a need long buried in my subconscious. It's a personal
pleasure like a spiritual value that drives me to a blank canvas.
To be painted sharpens my
senses, enlighten my vision. Now I see life from different angles and I am very glad. The passion for painting has
always been inhabited since my childhood. My first sketch was born Elie Dubois school where classes tend to focus
on manual dexterity. There I took my first painting on wood.
I was then led to other ways,
until I stop working.
Now having enough free time to indulge myself, I chose to get back to
painting, in preference to other mediums that I had at my disposal. And here I am!
