A new start requires a new website
After years of making various illustrations for clients and newspapers, I am taking a new path with my artwork. It's not that I'm leaving the period I refer to above and make no longer illustrations for the various media, no, certainly not. However, I get a lot of pleasure from my sketch work and in this way I want to give my new material a more prominent place.
To add even more variety in making drawings and paintings, it is good to make sketches in different places, with people, animals and objects. For example, I also represent the Urban Sketchers group. These sketchers regularly go out to immediately make a sketch of what they observe at that moment and want to register precisely that. Observing the place where you are, a situation you see at that moment and taking in everything that is nearby makes it the more beautiful to depict just that. Whether someone is at the checkout in a supermarket, a cloudy sky glides over your head, a building is in an area where the sun is setting or a season shows its properties, for example the autumn colors or a winter landscape. This website was rebuilt from scratch in September 2021. Not all pages are filled with content yet, but I will work on creating new pages and filling the existing ones with new work!
I hope you will enjoy my artwork.

The fortress of Mornas stands on a rocky outcrop on the left bank of the Rhône, overlooking the village of Mornas, established at its foot, and the surrounding area. You can walk to the fortress from the village below, but it's a hellish climb.
