Biography I spent my early years in Rambervillers, a small town in Les Vosges (France) In 1984, after a two years sabbatical devoted to study many forms of visual art at Ecole de l’Image in the nearby town of Epinal, I started to exhibit oils, acrylics, and etchings. After getting master’s degrees in French as a Foreign Language and Philosophy, I came to the USA - by way of Cambodia between 1992 and 1994, to teach in a private school near Boston. It is when I decided to specialize in linocuts and woodcuts, mainly by lack of proper studio space. Photography, which I had always used as a visual travel log, became the base of my work. I am represented in private and public collections in Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Ecuador, England, France, Italy, Japan, Norway, Sweden, and the USA .  Biographie
                                                                                                                                           J'ai passé mon enfance à Rambervillers, une petite ville dans les Vosges (France)   En 1984, après un congé sabbatique de deux ans pour suivre des cours d’art à l’Ecole de l’Image   d’Epinal, la ville voisine, j’ai commencé à exposer des huiles, des acryliques et des eaux-fortes.    Après avoir obtenu une maîtrise de FLE et un DEA de philosophie, je suis allé aux Etats-Unis,   par voie du Cambodge entre 1992 et 1994, pour enseigner dans une école privée près de Boston.    Je me suis alors spécialisé dans la  gravure sur bois ou linoleum, principalement par manque de   place là où j’habitais à l’époque.   La photographie, que j’ai toujours utilisée comme carnet de note visuel, est devenue la base de    mon travail.   Je suis représenté dans des collections publiques et privées en Belgique, au Brésil, au Canada,   au Danemark, en Equateur, en Angleterre, en France, en Italie, au Japon, en Norvège, en Suéde   et aux U SA.   Resume -CV                         GALLERY REPRESENTATION- Since 2011 Pettes Cove Art Gd Manan, NB, CANADA Since 2010 Seabreeze Gallery Hull, MA, USA Since 2006 13Forest Gallery Arlington, MA, USA Former representation 2001-12 The Old Print Barn Meredith, NH, USA 2006-11 Galerie de l’image Epinal, Vosges, FRANCE 2009-11 Images East Boston, MA , USA 2007-08 Book Ends Winchester, MA, USA 2007-08 Griffin Museum of Photography Winchester, MA, USA 2003-2008 Biddle Gallery Wyandotte, MI, USA 2000-2006 Galerie Aktuaryus (now closed) Strasbourg, Ht-Rhin, FR 2004-2005 Agur gallery (now closed) Sutton, Québec, CANADA 1999-2005 Expressions Graphics Oak Park, IL, USA 2000-2005 Maxima Art Center Arlington, MA, USA 2000-2004 L’Atelier (now closed) Epinal, Vosges, FRANCE 1999-2004 Blue Pony Gallery (now closed) Charlotte, NC, USA 2001-2004 L’Ecurie de Vitrey (now closed) Vitrey,M.-et-Moselle, FR 2003 Cambridge Artists Cooperative Cambridge, MA, USA 2001-2003 Herbert Halpern Fine Arts New Orleans, LA, USA 2001-2002 Hyperbole Gallery (now closed) Newburyport, MA, USA 2001 Print Club of Albany Gallery      Latham, NY, USA 2000-2001 Na’tur Remiremont,Vosges, FR SOME EXHIBITIONS                      Solo Shows 2016 Public library Brighton, MA, USA 2015-16 SOWA Art Market Boston, MA, USA 2012-15 Farmer’s market, Gd Manan Island NB, CANADA 2012-16 Arts Fest Beverly, MA, USA 2012 Public library Hingham, MA, USA 2012 Century Bank Medford, MA, USA 2012 Downtown Boston Arts Crafts market  Boston, MA, USA 2012 Public library Burlington, MA, USA 2011 Art Sale, Cary Memorial Library           Lexington, MA, USA 2011 Thomas Crane Public Library Quincy, MA, USA 2010 Global bazaar, Mount Ida College Newton, MA, USA 2010 Cary Memorial Library Lexington, MA USA 2010-2011 Art walk Nashua, NH, USA 2010 -2014 Downtown Crossing Art Fridays Boston, MA, USA 2010 -2016 Open Studios Cambridge, MA, USA 2010 Library Topsfield, MA, USA 2009 Victorian Stroll Medford , MA, USA 2009- 2013 Hyde Park Open Studios Hyde Park , MA, USA 2009- 2015 Allston Open Studios Allston, MA, USA 2009- 2014 Open Studios, ALL Gallery Lowell, MA, USA 2009 United South End Open Studios Boston, MA, USA 2009-2015 Printing Art Fair, Museum of Printing N.
