Bio Blurb

I spent my childhood in Rambervillers, a small town in the East of France, and I started quite early to write poems and short stories. In 1985, after a two years sabbatical to take art classes at the School of Image in Epinal, I exhibited my first works, oils, acrylics and etchings. Then, after having obtained a Master’s degree in FLE and a DEA in Philosophy, I went to teach in Cambodia. I arrived in the United States in 1994. It’s when I specialized in woodcuts or linocuts, mainly for lack of space to do something else at the time. Photography, which I had always used as a visual notebook, became the basis of my work. My writing turned to existential dialogues and short texts with photos. I decided to publish them myself as books or blogs.
