A native of France, Christophe arrived in Florida in 2003 to pursue his dream of a full time art career. He now paints mostly with oil paints after working with pastels and acrylics for years.  Primarily self-taught, he has studied with several well respected artists statewide and nationally.  After becoming a professional artist, he won more than fifty awards during the first six years. He recently had an exhibition in New York City with the World Tour of Contemporary Landscape Artists.  He uses the Golden Ratio to create his compositions and the Impressionists palette. He has been invited to participate in plein air paint-outs throughout the state.  His paintings can be found in collections throughout the United States and Europe.  His commissions include three produced posters for the Absente Liquor and Rum Barbancourt publicity campaign. Teaching painting classes and giving workshops are an enjoyment for him. He is a member of the International Plein Air Painters, World Tour of Contemporary Landscapes Artists and American Impressionists Society.  He received a grant to take a workshop with a Master Pastelist.
