While attend­ing my uncle painter and sculp­tor Jean TOURET since ear­ly youth, I was immersed in the con­struc­tion of a cre­ative work. He was my main inspi­ra­tion and teacher. In addi­tion, I was strong­ly attract­ed by impres­sion­ist paint­ing, Van Gogh, Gauguin, The Fauves, Picasso, Matisse, Chagall, Pollock, the Flemish and Italian prim­i­tives. Also daz­zled by Egyptian paint­ings and bas-reliefs, and indeed African art.

Still, I had to find my per­son­al way of approach­ing draw­ing, paint­ing and sculp­ture. I have always been inter­est­ed in edu­ca­tion­al meth­ods of dis­cov­er­ing one­self and the sur­round­ing life. In my attempt to ‘see’, I trav­elled along many reli­gious, polit­i­cal, social, psy­cho­log­i­cal and phys­i­cal paths. As I felt com­mit­ted to the rep­re­sen­ta­tion of human beings and their world, my life choic­es have been guid­ed by inter­est in life and all its aspects. I felt an urge to share many life expe­ri­ences, both indi­vid­ual and col­lec­tive, which led me to earn a liv­ing on many jobs and in the same time explore their backgrounds.

Thus, I went through sev­er­al major stages: learn­ing the tech­nique, the knowl­edge of human beings in their lives, the learn­ing of my own knowl­edge, and final­ly the real­i­sa­tion of works — all that car­ried out head-on.

Drawing was my first sup­port, along with essays of paint­ings and sculp­tures. I also went through a few sab­bat­i­cal peri­ods. Today, in Langeac, I am expe­ri­enc­ing both dai­ly and cre­ative life.
