|Born at Sanary sur mer in Provence, at ten years old I gave benefit from Fine Arts Society and, as soon as fifteen, I frequent for two years the Fine Arts Academy of Toulon.
In 1985, I stay in Indonesia and discover terra cotta working by modelling and pottery.
In 1992, I live in French West Indies, discover aquarelle and completely fulfill in for three years.
In 2000, coming back to France, I fit out my atelier at home in Provence.
From 2000 to 2003, after drawing, oil and acrylic painting, and aquarelle, wishful of deepening terra cotta working technics, and specially burning and enamelling, I frequent a pottery atelier for three years.
In 2003, to complete my human body approach, I sculpture with model for one year.
In 2004, a furnace acquisition allows me to personally bake my pieces, then to enamel or (and) to weather them, and to become independent in my artistic creation.
Since 2005, I fully dedicate myself to Sculpture.
Sometimes, I complete terra cotta working by wood carving or other materials that could accompany me.
That quest may require the approach other technics: in 2007 January, I discover the leaded glass window making.
Sculpture is a language, a way of emotions, welcome and sharing, that reveal to every one that everything has a meaning, and that to live is always to climb higher.
