I am an autodidact and I never took any class. I have learned photography by practicing it with passion. 

Since 15 years and with the arrival of the digital, I went from photography to artistic creation using my own photographs.

I met with people from the artistic field who became friends : Valérie Perrier-Sarrazin, art teacher and critic ; Micheline Leberre, graduate of the Beaux-Arts of Paris, drawer and artist-painter and Edith Poinsot-Lardy, artist\'s agent. They encouraged me to exhibit my work. I followed their advice and I exhibited my creations at the Oberkampf gallery in 2013. The positive feedbacks of the visitors reinforced my choice to continue in that direction.

At the end of 2016, I invented the \"Carrocatures\", which propose a digital and modern version of caricature. 

After several exhibitions and the feedbacks of visitors, I am convinced of the originality of my work and I\'m trying to make it known abroad and in particular in Italy, my home country.
