When I think of Mauritius my mind is instantly full of an amazing array of colour and light. Colour and light are also the two components at the heart of my work.
Even in my most complex paintings my desire is to create richness with the paint, but to keep the colour fresh and immediate. In all of my paintings I strive to capture the essence of my subjects. My aim is to transform a basket, a butterfly or a bird, a vase of tulips, a cypress tree or a person into a statement in paint that transcends reality.
I have held over 20 solo exhibitions in Italy, England and the USA. My work is in private, corporate and public collections worldwide.
I am thrilled to have my work represented by EKLA in Mauritius.
