I was born in a part of France whose history has been troubled by wars, in a torn, multicultural family. I lived and worked in France for a number of years before moving to New Caledonia. I have now settled in Australia, and enjoy every single minute of my life as a new Australian in Townsville. My years as an Associate Professor are behind me: I enjoyed teaching Australian Literature and Art to millions (?) of students in France, New Caledonia, and Australia. Now I enjoy being able to paint full time, all the time, and to learn more and more about art.
PLACE, IDENTITY, BELONGING
my stories are essentially about being
- being born and alive and belonging -
these are the issues I am looking at, and - what else???
I love the tropics ❣️ and I love crocodiles ☺️
BORN & WELCOME
are profoundly symbolic abstract expressionist representations of
my VOICE and my STORY and my OUTLOOK on the world.
