“ As a result of my experience, I profoundly believe in the Power of Art. Art educates the senses, and has the power to uplift and to bring people together. Above all, it has a significant impact on a person’s personal relationships. I attach great importance to these basic principles in all my workshops, to serve and to defend the cause of humanity. ”
Trained by the great Parisian aquarellist Annie Madec !
