Biography: I am a 37 yo french artist established near Paris and have been painting for the past 20 years.
I am passionate about both portraits & persian miniatures.
The depth of human emotions is a fascinating source of inspiration for me. The portrait is a way of transmitting my emotional reaction as a testimony of the world around me, of humanity, and indeed mirror, ultimately, ourselves.
As a Persian miniaturist, I aim to create an interior world which is not in imitation of the visible and create a reality of the heart which replaces the reality of the eyes. The Persian miniature is then, not only an image but also a “Spiritual Poetry”. As the Little Prince says, “The essential is invisible to the eyes”. I aim to probe, with my miniatures, our intelligible world – in the Platonic sense – where we find beauty, harmony, light and Love.
More detail about the meaning of the Persian miniatures I draw can be found on my website: https://www.theenchantedcypress.com/about-us-a-propos
