AutBorn in Mussidan in 1959, self-taught, I was 14 years old
when I discovered clay and its infinite possibilities and a
passion for sculpture was born. I had covered a lot of ground,
doing many regional, national and international exhibitions
and salons until in 2004, further to a meeting with a
stonemason, I embarked upon a stonemasonry-ornamentalist
course. I obtained my CAP certificate of professional
competence and left my native Périgord to set up my new
business in Provence.
For over ten years I created stone oeuvres and monumental
sculptures for individual clients and worked for companies
specialised in restoring historical monuments. However, I
found it difficult to be so far from my beloved Périgord and
eventually moved back in 2014 to set up my workshop in
Activities I create classic and figurative works in clay or stone:
decorations, interior and exterior stonework and funereal
objects. I also restore sculptures and ornaments with all the
respect due to their original creators and I am proud to
contribute to our Architectural Heritage. Who are my clients?
Individuals, municipalities, architects, stonemasonry
companies and heritage renovation bodies.
I have participated in many regional exhibitions and salons
and my work is on permanent exhibition at the gallery, "Thenon
les Z'Arts' situated in Thenon, 24210 Dordogne.
From clay to stone was only a small step, each stone is a
challenge and over time these two diametrically opposed
materials have become my accomplices. Nature is my only guide
and I have absolute faith in her; nature is never ugly and my
ultimate aim is to remain ever faithful to her. I am
passionate about sculpture and work carefully, sincerely and
dedicatedly on myself to strengthen this sense of depth and be
rewarded with the precious joy of working on projects, large
or small without discrimination.
