About La Dame Noire

 I know that all my wearings are often black, but I chose the nickname 'la dame noire' in reference to the best and the strongest piece of the game of chess. I like that kind of strategy, reflection and that perfect balance between anticipation and improvisation.

Creative trend

I'm less attracted to gouache or acrylic painting - although I occasionally do it - but one of my favorit new trends is to custom various objects as Skateboard, snowboard, ... even 'WC board' ! And my very favorit one is music instruments.

About my drawings and illustrations they have gradually been free from any color in favor of black ink. Probably due to my other activity as Graphic & Web Designer where - of course - colors are the favorit choice of my clients / employers.
