A native of Alsace, France, I am an artist living and working in the Pacific Northwest. Using film, digital capture, digital processing and printmaking techniques, I create images that explore themes of nature and landscape. My creative processes and approach to my artwork are a reflection of my training as a physician and a scientist – a continuous path of exploration and experimentation. Instead of presenting the reality of things, I find my fascination in transforming it into a subjective perspective. ‘Making’ an image rather than ’ taking’ a picture – less description, more imagination; less documentation, more suggestion. By manipulating color, light, shadows, contrast and texture, sometimes combining multiple photographs, I seek to create images of beauty, and I trust that the enchantment, the poetry will follow.
