His childhood spent in a tiny hamlet in the heart of the Darney Forest, one of the most beautiful forests in France - will become a source of inspiration for his creations focused on wildlife, the flora and especially the forest and lake landscapes.

I owned and operated an antique and vintage Decorative Arts (statuary, vases, paintings and furniture) storefront in New York City called JOIA for 36 years.
