A self-taught artist since 1999, I make figurative insect sculptures as well as small or monumental abstract works for the interior or the garden, some affordable, others a little more expensive.
All works are made from recycled metal.
Since my childhood I have been fascinated by the biodiversity of nature. I grew up in freedom and joy in a "rural area". With respect, I observed frogs, earthworms, mice and insects.
I probably looked at the world very naively but with great admiration. However, I consciously want to continue to see life in this way and believe that respect for nature is more important than ever.
The sculptures of insects, spiders, bats, frogs, ... speak for themselves. The creation of abstract (monumental) sculptures is equally obvious to me in this context.
By placing my sculptures in selected settings, I try to create a visible fusion between art and nature.
Placing a sculpture near a tree draws attention to that tree. In turn, the natural setting of mountains, trees, clouds, rocks or water immediately puts a work of art in its right place, with its right value.
Through my work and the research I have been doing for more than 20 years, I want to see more care, respect and justice for life on earth. For animals (including humans) and plants.
I am grateful to have had these experiences in my youth, and I realise that a balanced environment can form the basis of a happy life.
Welcome to my world and to my website.
