Etc etc

I have recently been interviewed by a local magazine, “Mojacar Magazine” The title of the interview is

“Miki, an Artist with Passion!”

Hello Miki, thanks for talking to Mojacar Magazine.

We came across your site by mistake but what caught our eye was your style of painting, can you tell us a bit about yourself and why you settled in Spain?

Hello Ian, and thank you for inviting me to appear in your great magazine.

I have been living and working  in the Mojacar area, or more precisely Turre, for about one year. Before, I lived in El Albir, a little seaside town by Benidorm.

How I came to definitely settle in Spain is a long love story, starting about 53 years ago, when I came on holiday to Benidorm with my parents, and then every year thereafter.

I have moved a lot since I was born,  but Spain has always been my constant, in fact the only place where I felt home.

I was born in 1955 in the French Pyrenees, in a town called Tarbes. But due to the profession of my father, we lived in many different places around France. At 19 I left France to go and study Mathematics and Physics in Germany. After my studies  I worked in Germany as a mathematician in the university, and then later in industry but I had started to paint in parallel as I was about 25 years old. Just a way of finding a balance to the cold and naked world of mathematics (but which I was nevertheless passionate for!)

Then came a point in my life when I decided to stop working as a mathematician and dedicate my life entirely to art. I thought Spain was the right country to live as a painter, especially because of the weather which allows me to paint outside all year round. But also because I started to feel homesick up there!

Have you seen the area change in the time you have been here? For the better or worse?

Well, I am sure that you can imagine how much I saw Spain changing in the last 53 years…
