The pachira (pachira aquatica) is a tropical plant whose flowers give edible nuts. Although native to South America, its symbolism is strongest in Asia. According to the Chinese tradition, its palmate leaves resemble hands that catch the good fortune of which the twisted trunk becomes the guardian.

Also popular in Japan and Taiwan, it is often used for ornamental purposes and makes a great housewarming gift by guaranteeing happiness and prosperity to the new home.

The fruits of the pachira are those of the work of art:
To the one who cherishes it, it will exalt his artistic passion and his interior.
To the one who invests, it guarantees a safe, even prosperous investment.

I am honored to introduce you to my work through the Pachir’art gallery.
Self-taught, I paint instinctively but methodically. My paintings require a great deal of preparatory work.

My first paintings represented contemporary faces like Nanana’s, Fusionn’elles… Over time, my spirituality and my interest in esotericism took place on my paintings. My collections Équilibre & sens, Originelle, and Nosso Lar are a prime example.

My Franco-Senegalese interbreeding gives me a precious ethnic and spiritual aspiration. My life experiences, my disappointments in love, my relationships with others, my professional experience for 15 years in a psychiatric hospital have allowed me to apprehend, to see the world differently with a lot of empathy and benevolence.
