History

Le Mans, 1966. The "24 Hours". My first race... One of my fondest memories is this image, below. The eventual winner, the Ford GT40 MKII, racing through the night, braking hard for the Tertre Rouge right hander.

Born and raised near Paris, France, I was able to draw about any subject from the moment I could hold a pencil. However, having developed a passion for race and sports cars during my teenage years, my artistic activities would be mostly dedicated to this area. Attending the nearby 24 Hours of Le Mans race reinforced this passion and later led me to create a collection of paintings depicting some of the race winners.

Now a resident of Southern Utah, I spend most of my time creating technical illustrations, mainly for the computer industry, using software applications like Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, and 3D modeling programs like CATIA Composer. Going back to the easel is now an occasional, but always satisfying and rewarding event.

I hope you will enjoy the Gallery. Your feedback is greatly appreciated.
