July 2015 .
First a little update : the store was empty for a little while , my work took a different turn recently , but all what is written below is accurate since it really came that way !
For now my creative life is in sand painting , to say the truth I injured myself carving wood , and I have to give it a rest .... But it doesn't stop me from creativity , as I need to express my soul matter ! :) ... there here is the new Wiz Art shop . Hope you will enjoy that too ! :)
Previous " about " 2007 t0 2014.
I start wood carving in 2007 , learning on my own day after day, pouring a great deal of soul matters into it and hours ! it is indeed a spiritual act for me to carve the ancient symbols of my ancestors. I'm from the celtic side of France, Brittany.
I left my beloved country 25 years ago , to first go to Paris , then Caribbean and then United states , further away I went , deeper I felt to seek my own roots , then at one point I had to close the loop and I finally came back home in April 2012 . I'm now living in a little Village call Carantec , on the north west coast of Brittany , where I grew up , and here I am connecting to my own Mother Land again , getting daily inspiration from this mysterious and mythic Celtic Land.
My spirituality is Animist, I'm a humble practitioner of a kind of celtic shamanism that concerns only myself , but I must say that it influenced my work a lot and surely my way to work .
I'm deeply attracted to ancient celtic design , mainly from the 4th to 6th century BC , I study ancient artefacts and draw my own interpretation from them. I always had a kind of passion for tribal art , then I guess I feel that what I can do for my own tribe is follow the path of my own ancestors .
I work full time in my studio at home . I live alone with my two dogs , but I have a all tribe of friends and my family around me and all around this beautiful planet. It is a simple kind of life , nothing is materially luxurious , but Nature here is gorgeous , the Sea is powerful , our culture is very rich , the way of life is joyful and healthy , then I feel that my wealth is in all that ... but don't get me wrong here , I'd like to make a living of my work , and it is thankfully going that direction.
Majority of my customers are druids , shamans and shamanic practitioners , Nature oriented spiritual people , many also with celtic roots from all over the world . I send my work everywhere , from New Zealand to the US , to Scandinavia to South Africa . Many in Europe too, and especially in the UK .
I also worked on special commission of ritualistic tools , and altar artefact . When I said that it is handmade , please note that it is truly made by hand , no power tools are involve , I only own a little band saw for the ruff shaping , everything else is made with tiny gouges and chisels , sanding paper of different kinds . I also only use organic oils for the finish , no toxic chemical are involve .
I like to draw and paint too , I like to use natural materials like wool , leather and all kind of herbs and natural pigments , my work is in constant evolution and hope to explore all that and more for many years to come .
I hope you will enjoy a bit of this ride with me , please feel free to contact me if you have questions about commission work , or what ever you would like to know about l'Atelier Wiz Art .
Thank you for your interest , many blessings .
