After a short period teaching in the Vosges I discovered the
Dordogne and its rurality. An immediate attraction and the
desire to move there, with closer to nature and humans: The
creation of a small farm in mixed-farming and breeding
associated with a place to live for teenagers.
Since my memory about weaving at the Teacher Training School
in 1978, I always felt the need to regularly be involved with
it; having studied and done research about other techniques.
I became professional in 2007 (setting up in plant weaving on
the path of Land' art of Bourrou (24)). Since then, I exhibit
regularly in the Dordogne (Hautefort, Varaignes…) and in
I create unique pieces that bring together different
techniques (wood working, weaving, mosaic) and different
materials (metal, wood, plant matter, enamel, coloured
glass...). I use material that is local and natural.
I do not have an preconceived idea. Each time, I let myself be
guided by the wood, their movements and their singularity. I
like to give life again to materials “from here”, filled with
history such as, for example, the metal circles of barrels or
the ancient oak that fell behind my house during the storm of
My “interlacings” combine the vegetable, the mineral and the
animal all together; each technique and each matter is
enriched by the others and their contrasts, to suit the
inspiration of the moment. Each creation returns to the simple
beauty of nature and encourages daydreams while letting to you
follow the thread…of your imagination.
