Artworks are investments
They will be around for future generations. They are not going away and will not need updating.
The paintings that leave the studio are hand made with loving care.
Quality is important
Each painting is made from the highest quality archival oil pigments, solid timber stretchers and Belgian linen, or quality archival wood panels.
The oil that is used makes a difference to how a painting looks. Following the methods of old masters such as Velasquez, raw linseed oil is refined without applying heat. This oil is then thickened in the Mediterranean summer sun for several weeks, being stirred daily before it is filtered and ready to be used. It is mixed with the paint to produce an incredible richness of surface and translucency, without using any toxic solvents.
The studio is located in Montpellier, in the south of France. You are welcome to make an appointment for a private studio visit.
