I showed a painting for the first time in a group show at the age of 5. I studied in Met de Penninghen, les Beaux-Arts de Paris and ESADaR. I participate regularly in personal or group exhibition, in commercial galleries and in institutions. I love to transmit, and I have been teaching arts for twenty years, in various schools, now in Gobelins l’Ecole de l’Image. I have been exploring minimal forms of paintings, expressive abstraction and traditional practices, and most of the existing visual art techniques. I'm a painting technique geek, and some of the things I discovered might actually surprise you.

Where you'll be

We will be in my studio, where I have been painting for years—everything we need is in there. It's a typical studio in a former industrial building, with lots of light and space.

Très bonne expérience avec Etienne. L’atelier m’a permis de découvrir une approche du dessin que je ne connaissais pas, avec des techniques assez surprenantes au début ! J’ai aussi beaucoup apprécié les anecdotes et histoires sur l’art qui ont captées mon attention tout du long !

Hôte qui a su à la fois nous partager de bonnes notions théoriques ainsi que des anecdotes historiques intéressantes. La pratique a su stimuler notre grand intérêt. À recommander!

Etienne is really professional and very talented artist. He is smart, intelligent, charming and patient person. It was a real pleasure to spend a couple of hours in his studio and to learn something absolutely new for me!

Étienne was amazing and truly knows his subject and how to teach well. I study the history of art at university so he tailored the experience for me for some really interesting facts about different movements and artists, as I already had a fairly good understanding of composition and tonal values so didn’t need to go through the absolute basics. Hospitality was flawless, the tea and biscuits were delicious! He also helped me understand why posture is so vital to a good drawing and was just a very special experience. As a solo female traveller I can sometimes feel uncomfortable around men but he made me feel so at home so this is not a worry at all!
