I paint luminous abstract landscapes with acrylic paint on gold, bronze, copper and aluminum leaf covered canvasses. The glow of the metals shines through the transparent color that is etched with rows of finely drawn lines. The viewer’s gaze follows these undulating waves and uninterrupted lines across the field of color with a focused intensity. My work is in private, corporate and museum collections world wide, and I have received numerous awards. I have shown in solo and group exhibitions, including many museums. I was born in Paris, France, grew up in Quebec City, and earned an MFA at Concordia University, Montreal, before moving to New York City, where I continue to live and work.
