Born in the center of France, I spent my childhood and youth there. After completing my University of Blaise Pascal studies, at the Lycee Madame De Stael, I taught seniors in High School and prepared students for the Baccalaureate exam. in 1975, I moved to the United States and taught courses in History of the Arts in Western Civilization at the Performing Arts School.

Today, I teach gifted students in the Downingtown School District. I enjoy plein air painting to capture the first impressions of a landscape vivid colors and contrasting textures. For the last years, I have been painting on Cape Cod in Wellfleet during vacation and in the Luberon, South of France, where my uncle,a local artist, lives.
