A few quotes that drew my attention & believe have shaped my being.
Watch your thoughts, for they become your words. Choose your words, for they become your actions. Understand your actions, for they become your habits. Study your habits, for they become your character. Develop your character, for it becomes your destiny.
‘I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world’. A.Einstein
“A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men.” -Willy Wonka
“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
Love is the ability and willingness to allow those that you care for to be what they choose for themselves without any insistence that they satisfy you.
“You are a child of the Universe, no less than the moon and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the Universe is unfolding as it should.”
Be content with what you have, rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.
“The purpose of life is undoubtedly to know oneself. We cannot do it unless we learn to identify ourselves with all that lives. The sum total of that life is God. The instrument of this knowledge is boundless, selfless service.”

The bright colors and wavy shapes of his childhood culture, added to his french schooling, had a great influence on his work as a draftsman and then as a painter.

In 2005 he left Los Angeles for Toronto where he devoted himself fully to his passion for oil painting. Between 2009 and 2012 he found his workshop in the Moroccan countryside where he retired with a roll of 50 meters of canvas.
