My very first canvas, in 1987, while I was employed as a secretary and painting but for my great pleasure and relaxation, were inspired by French Provence.
From my youth I spent nearly every springtime in the south of France especially in Var.
Saint Tropez too was an important root of inspiration. A very close friend lending a very pretty house near the old harbour.
This house and that lovely French little place will remain deeply in my mind.
Year after year I tramped tiny paths through villages in Provence : they were sublime and luminous. All the smells and the colours of Provence are filling my heart with happyness. Some day I'll come back there with an immense happiness and pleasure.
