I instinctively always moved towards matter to be transformed. After taking a certificate in visual arts and a bachelor's degree in visual arts at the Université du Québec à Montréal, I received the call of the earth and took a course at the School of Horticulture at the Montreal Botanical Garden.

It was when I came home, in my native Laurentians, that I rediscovered this former pigsty of Saint-Augustin de Mirabel transformed into a pottery workshop by Lyse Fleury; a larger-than-life mentor and friend. She was the one who taught me to feel the earth differently. Since that day, I spend almost as much time in my garden as in my studio.

Clay is the material of a thousand and one possibilities. There are no limits, we can turn it, shape it, remove it, add it, recover it .... I love the soothing touch of the earth on my hands, the clay does good to the soul. Working in my studio every day surrounded by trees and birds is an incredible opportunity.

I live from the earth. Being a potter and horticulturist are the most beautiful jobs in the world. My artistic approach is very much inspired by the Laurentian nature that shapes my daily life. I like the idea of eating lettuce from my garden in the bowl that I created myself, it's rewarding. Utilitarian parts allow me to enter people's homes and be part of their daily lives. I think that investing in local pottery is a committed gesture for our local economy, it is also a way to make live again and again one of the oldest mediums in the world. Because there is nothing better than enjoying your coffee in a handmade cup or cooking your apple croustade in a beautiful large handmade bowl.

Pottery is my happiness and it is my pleasure to share my passion with you
