Special orders

Miniatures of our children , grandchildren and even our favorite animals are very appreciated gifts and not too expensive. Moreover the small frames exposed together on a wall make a very beautiful decoration and with each arrival of a new member in the family ( human or not ) the collection grows harmoniously

I also make paintings and drawings to order in different techniques, oils, pastels, watercolors, inks, watercolored drawings .

For any commissioned work first contact me by phone because I can better explain what kind of photography I need . For a portrait if your photo is in black and white, you will have to tell me the colors to use .
I will then be able to tell you the cost of my work because it depends on the technique, my working time, the subject and the support used. For the miniatures the prices range between 60€ and 140€.

The price of those larger works also depends on the technique, size and the possible frame .

Whether it is miniature or larger work, I will then make an estimate taking up all the details we will have agreed and if you accept it I will ask you for a deposit of 30% . To make the payment of this account easier, I can make you a global paypal invoice payable online in several times online by credit card or paypal account or if you are in the nearby area and you prefer, in cash and I will issue you a receipt.

My life’s journey

I am a trained painter from Brittany, Celtic region of France on the Atlantic coast , a graduate of the West Berlin Art School HSBK , mean while to pay my studies, I sold my drawings on the Kurfûrstendam the main avenue of West Berlin …..Then I came back to France

My mother told me that I started painting when I was a small kid. In the attics she found the first price I won,
I was not yet 6 and I’m proud of it 😀 . On the right some photos of when I sold my paintings in the street in West Berlin

During the last 4/5….decades I painted large canvases and large watercolours and exhibited in fairs and galleries (in France, Germany Saoudia Arabia, Italy, United states and others) and I occasionally painted a miniature because I’m fascinated about painting very smal with tiny brushes, i like the contrast in my work .
Due to health problems I stopped painting for a few long years. Since this year (2022) I paint again but the prolonged standing being painful for me( everyone gets older :-D), I paint mostly miniatures but I continue to paint watercolours ( because our Breton coast is so beautiful) and watercolour drawings, I draw with graphite and pastel and sometimes paint and sometimes slightly larger oil or acrylic canvases.
In addition to portraits and landscapes on commission I let my imagination speak for large watercolour drawings mixing my dreams, legends and mythologies.
The miniatures are generally commissions, portraits of people you love, your beloved animals and even your house, your boat and from time to time miniature of a landscape you love. I also paint small miniatures taking up the Victorian fashion of lover’s eye.
