Pont neuf : the oldest bridge in Paris

If the Eiffel Tower is the symbol of the France and Paris, « La Dame de fer » is not the most visited the monument by France. First place goes to the cathedral « Notre-Dame de Paris ». And if you want to visit this extraodinary church you must take one of the 9th bridges to go to the island St-Louis. And why not take the « Pont neuf » ?

If you are looking for an unforgettable and original place to immortalize in painting, I recommend this view. Between the barges, the seine and the bridge, what a beautiful postcard of Paris! Many painters have immortalized it. We often go to this bridge with my students for an outdoor painting class  and they always make beautiful watercolour paintings!

All about apples

For some people, October rhymes with leaf litter and melancholy, however, I am not one of them. Above all, October announces the time for apples! What a wonderful fruit. Thanks to my lovely house in Normandy, I have the opportunity to harvest kilograms of fruits every year. Therefore I can do one of the things that I like the most (after painting of course): cooking. Because what is more tempting that a fruit fallen from a tree?
A great thing about apples is that you can cook them in a sweet or in a salty dish: apple crumble, black pudding with apples, endive salad with blue cheese, nuts and apples… And it’s always tasty.

Exhibition in Pigalle district in Paris

As far as I know, painting and art always held an important place in my life. My parents were loving art : paintings, sculptures, furniture, antiques…, there were beautiful things at home, when I was young. And they passed on to me their passion.

I’m always delighted to welcome people in my studio for an art class. To transmit to them my passion for the painting and to give of good advice. And I am very proud when they are inspired by my paintings to realize their own creation!
