I discovered my passion for woodworking when I was 18 years old during an internship with les Compagnons du Tour de France. Today I apply the knowledge that I acquired in France and Québec in my woodworking practices (creation of small wooden objects).
I like to use wood in its entirety, without the addition of dyes or industrial varnishes. To bring out its beauty, I prefer to apply a natural mixture of wax, resin and linseed oil, to which I add pine, orange and rosemary scents. I sometimes add a touch of pyroengraving, leather or pewter.
I use recycled wood and receive materials from local suppliers. I prefer fruit trees and torrefied wood over exotic woods.
I invest in the planting of trees to compensate for the carbon released during my travel by car and plane (Carbone Boréal).

SYMBOLISM OF THE LOGO
Trees have always been of crucial importance in the life of man.
Don’t we forget about them a little too much nowadays?
I chose to illustrate their importance by drawing my own triskelion. Wood is associated with the three symbolic primordial elements: earth, water and fire.
Trees provide us with a richness of colour as much in their greenery as in the wood itself. The harmony that results is a source of inspiration.
While rooted into the ground, trees are always moving. The spiral or triskelion symbolizes this dynamic that I like to bring out in my objects.
