I have always been interested in art, though I have no specific artistic training–I'm self-taught. I choose to draw rather than paint. My love for Japanese prints has surely contributed to this choice. But as much as I draw, I write, and it seems to me that after a few years experience of writing, drawing is the logical extension of this symbolic trait. The same way I like putting my thoughts or stories on paper with black letters, I like to draw with India ink what I believe to be the sensation of a landscape or a scene. I also do portraits but I have a fondness for city scenes and everyday life. I use mostly the same technique: drawing paper and a pen with India ink or a black felt-tip. I get inspiration from my many trips for my city landscape drawings and I use any interesting photo I find for my scenes of everyday life. I work both in front of my subjects or from photos I take or photos I find.
