“In my youth I had the good fortune to spend time in Claviers, a small village in the hills of Provence. Populated by an endearing community and surrounded by a breathtaking landscape riddled with medieval architecture; Claviers was a wonderland for a burgeoning visual thinker. I endeavor to convey through paint and canvas the persistent sensation of boundless freedom I found being in this land of castles, lavender, and magic.”
