Hello / bonjour

I'm a visual poet and book designer, born in France and currently living in the beautiful Central Coast of California. 

I practice art and writing everyday, and I design books for indie presses and authors. I'm also an occasional French teacher, and the Artistic Director of Mad Gleam Press, a bilingual collective of writers and artists based in Monterey CA, New-York, and Paris.

I sell my artwork online through here.

You'll also find my artwork at Old Capitol Books in Monterey, CA.
