My career in visual arts, portraiture, sculpture, design and artistic direction of architectural trompe-l'oeil murals have given me great expertise and earned me the recognition of my peers.
But I had discovered clay when I was eleven. It was love at first sight that marked the start of an intense and constant relationship. At nineteen I was already making a living as a potter. Ingenuous, however, I also harbored at the time an idealized and romantic vision of art, which prompted me to quit my work to study at university. But my first passion had left an indelible mark. The relationship with clay, the making of unique pieces and the endless exploration of the alchemy of earth, water and fire is irreplaceable.
For twelve years, I stayed regularly in Catalonia where I had a mini country house with a workshop. This is where I took the time to return to my first love. I started with raku, at the medieval-style art school in Tortosa: Escola d'Art i Disseny. Now in the beautiful region of Kamouraska, my story continues.
Sometimes you have to travel the world to realize how good was home.
