Your weakness? Your strength?

My strength comes from my weakness!

What makes you different?

It’s not up to me to tell it!

Actually I never decided, because drawing and painting have always been part of my life.

What do you find most fascinating about the creative process?

I never know where it ‘s going to lead me , and when I finally reach something, it’s stunning. 

A few words about your favourite creation?

“Voltes” because of the feeling between lightness and gravity.

Someone else’s work that inspired or inspires you…

Giorgio Morandi, Eileen Gray, Miriam Cahn, Richard Tuttle…

2017: Where are we going?

To a new world of resource sharing, or nowhere.

When the going gets tough…

Resist and remind yourself that you are tiny compared to the big universe…

Your city’s favourite spots?

I spent a few months in Düsseldorf a few years ago and I love the K21 Museum. In Paris, the Bourdelle Museum is my favourite, and again a sculptor place : I ‘ve recently discovered the Georg kolbe Museum in Berlin.
