Welcome on Painting the Life, a website dedicated to one of my passions who started in childhood with graphite pencils and gouache. My pastels practice began in 1996 by a need to further more explore color ; since I am totally captivated by this medium. Curious to know more in art's field, I take oil painting classes at a Fine Arts society. Around the same period, I also animate children's workshops teaching them drawing and painting basis. But a day, work taking precedence over my passion, I put away my easel to install it again a few years later. In 2009, I discover artist colored pencils and I'm amazed by their brightness and beautiful colors. I also like to use other mediums, pure or mixed depending on the desired effect. My painting is primarily focused on life, colors, flowers, wildlife and so captivating cats gazes.
I wish you a sweet and pleasant visit on Painting the Life.
It is not a question to paint the life. but to make alive the painting. Pierre Bonnard
