A few words about me

The aesthetics of animals remind us that even though nature remains fragile, it can be extraordinarily beautiful. As a tribute to this beauty, my work begins with a thorough research into the anatomy of each subject to understand its structure and substance. But it invariably ends with an exploration of the lines and volumes that give the animal's body its individual grace. So my work strives to capture the outlines of beauty.

Essentially self taught in sculpting, I have been working on 3-D artwork since 1991. Earlier work was mostly limited to direct cutting in limestone or marble. I moved on to Bronze about 10 years ago.

More recently I have been working with a variety of materials: polymer resin for the outdoor (see Rock my Baby) and in 2010 with soldered iron and aluminium as shown on the attached picture

On demand, I have been working on commission for private collectors. More details available on request.

Museum Collection : Francois Pompon Museum

François Pompon Museum (Burgundy) :
Francois Pompon is considered in this country as the 'father' of modern animal sculpture. Born in the Burgundy town of Saulieu, near Dijon, a lovely museum is now dedicated to the man who humbly but undoubtedly changed the way man has represented the world of animals. The bronze sculpture « Danse avec les ours » (see picture below) I created in 2004 has joined of the permanent collection of the Museum in 2008 and has since been registered on the National Collection Registry of the Museums of France
