Born in France in Carcassonne, I spent my youth in Toulouse. After the BAC I go to Germany to attend the courses of the State School of Photography in Cologne for 3 years. After a short training period in Paris as an assistant photographer. I move to Barcelona as a still life photographer for advertising. Working for many years with international advertising agencies: Saatchi, McCann Ericson, Walter Thompson, Publicis, TBWA etc. Feeling the need to create with my hands, I started to create small sculptures in modelling paws (most of the time women’s bodies), which I would later spend in clay or on wood. Registered by my mother in a sculpture competition, I have the surprise, for my first sculpture on display, to win the first Prize of the Paul Ricard Foundation. Endowed with a nice sum that will allow me to melt my first bronzes... For a long time I combined my two activities; photography and sculpture until a few years ago only doing sculpture with passion....
