My sculpture work is patiently built from turned elements, and is situated between the mineral and the vegetable. It has as anchor the “trees”. However, presences from dreamlike universes emerge, which speak, depending on the age of those who observe them, of MIYAZAKI or the fantastic tales of ANDERSEN. My love for trees comes from old chestnut and oak trees found next to my beloved house “La Valette” opposite my studio, some of these trees are between 300 and 400 years old, and all of them stand up and speak to me, every winter especially, when they offer me their frank and delicate personalities… it is there that I communicate with them, during these 3 or 4 months when, undressed from their summer finery, they force my gaze, every day, renewed.

I hope my work not only has a body but also a soul.
