"...To paint Morroco...to paint the men and the horses of Morroco
represents much more for me that the only pleasure of translating on fabric or paper scenes of "exotic" life ! To paint Morroco,
the lights and the landscapes, is to get back in my childhood and my adolescence...to establish a footbridge between my heart
and my native country which impregnated me with its charms. To paint the lights of Morroco...the sky of Morroco....is to pay
homage to the beauty..., it's to feel the marine salt, the sun burning, the mixed odors of spices and vegetables of the "
Souks ", the nostalgia of the ground walls collapsing under time, the effervescence of crowds which make streets their place
of living and meeting....
I miss Oudja as I miss Morocco, and when I missed them too much,
I dream them in paintings...."
