I have done numerous exhibitions in France and Spain and on request I prepare wall display for schools or museum.

I have recently added sea related print sections where you can find prints of my original seaweed artworks, seashells prints and several and different sea related digital collage prints.

Due to my interests for the new technologies and the old papers and books, I have opened other 2 shops in Etsy
