In 1977 while helping to remodel a 16th-century convent in Provence, I carved my first piece. On an old larch beam, I carved the hollyhocks that grew in the convent garden using a small straight-edge chisel found in a workroom. I have continued doing all the work on each piece from design to execution myself, in my single-person, solar-powered, off-grid studio. Drawn to natural shapes and forms, I try to make pieces that are not only visually exciting but also a delight to handle and use.
