This trio first interrogates the notion of space between us. Each piece also opens with two windows, indicating a key to imagining our inner lives, and the space between. I am a woodturner, a crastsman.
Constantly in search of simplicity, my creative work is marked by tight curves, simple shapes and thin textures. I am listening for the emotion provoked by the simple curves that daily nurture my eyes. I really believe that curve IS an emotion.

My imagination is full of rope textures, organic shapes, pieces sometimes carved, often turned. My work is speaking about the tree. That's why I like the distortion of green wood after drying, a sort of second life. I can expect it but I can't master this movement. It fascinates me.

My hand does the main work, of course, but first comes the tree, its history and when the sap was still running through its veins.
