It all began in 2003 when, at the age of 23, I was doing portraits using pastels,
from photos of Tibet and Vietnam. At the same time, I was also doing charcoal portraits of my family.
In 2004, I met up with local artists from the Angers area and so was able to share their passion and expertise in painting and printmaking. With their help, I was able to develop my skills and create some works of art. Thereafter I started researching into the lifestyle of the peasants of Anatolia. I immortalized some scenes of a traditional type of agriculture which has since disappeared.
In 2006, I started attending evening classes at the Ecole Supérieure des Beaux Arts d'Angers where I studied for the next 7 years. I explored the art of Turkish carpets, impregnated with the experience of those who design them. Using oils on canvas, I made illustrations of their patterns which contain their own particular language. In my work I use a variety of materials including sellotape, polystyrene, tissue paper, fabric and cardboard.
