“I was born in Vallorcine and I’ve always lived here, setting up my workshop 28 years ago. It was a childhood dream. In fact, I pick up everything that falls to the ground, I recycle everything that people no longer look at and I turn them into people, animals or houses – objects of all kinds and sizes. Mushrooms become houses, pine cones become witches and feathers change into butterflies. I start off from what I find to create something from nothing. When I get a tree stump, for example, I generally know how it’s going to end up.

Recycling and ecology are also about learning to pick things up without ripping or breaking them. That’s what I teach the children that come to see me.  You could say that rather than destroying nature, we give it a second  life.  ”
