“I have been fascinated with the marine world since my childhood, and became interested in mythology and legends of the oceans. These are a rich source of inspiration for me, and inspire the magical, the mysterious and the fantastical.
Also, I am as an artist part of the “Generation Grand Bleu” – those of us who were caught up in the world of diving and our connection with the oceans as portrayed in the film “Le Grand Bleu”. I was fortunate to know and dive with Jacques Mayol, who inspired a generation in France and he was a great inspiration for me. Jacques introduced me to dolphins, and this contributed directly to the development of my art.”
“The mermaids are in a sense the protectors of the marine world, and they can carry a message that will be heard – a message to protect the oceans and preserve the endangered species.”
