I studied fine arts in London taught art classes in schools and ran art workshops in the past. I'm now living in Normandy I have an art studio. In my paintings or drawings I develop my ideas from 2 aspects : an adaptation from nature or places. I try to transmit a message, or an idea often about concerns which are important to me like social, ecological or historical or I simply use landscapes and my surrounding to convey an emotion skills, techniques and of course colours to obtain a result I feel happy with.
Jean François Peslot works on three axes: lights, colours and materials. He likes to differentiate materials in order to obtain the chosen colour. By using different materials this gives various effects, the paint is illusion.. He says " Put colour in your head to make life dancing!"
