In a nutshell...

"Ever since I was young, I've been fascinated by horses, their elegance despite their mass and power.

 

I've always drawn and modeled horses and their riders.

 

I also love horses in everyday life, the simplicity and poetry of the relationship they sometimes form with man.

 

Perhaps this is what drew me to Mongolia, "the horse people", where I visited in 2012.

 

I drew strong inspiration from nomadic life and the horsemen of the steppe.

 

I love the interaction between people and animals, and everyone finds their own interpretation.

I explore these different themes through clay.


Terracotta is an obvious choice for the relationship between the animal and the land it comes from.


After firing, I like to add warm colors to my subjects using washes.

I now exhibit in France and abroad, and take part in Franco-Mongolian artistic exchanges."
