RESEARCH & DETERMINATION: Following a serious accident, I had
to abandon dance and reconsider my future.
Self-taught: sculpture was for me a means of reconstruction
and, over and above this, a means of expression. Curiosity and
a thirst for learning, for creation and for researching
different artistic techniques associated with the love of raw
materials, led me as early as 1993 to sculpt stone (limestone,
soapstone, alabaster) thereby concretising my ideas.
Always looking for space, volume, relief and light, in 1998 I
discovered glass at the Lucas de Nehou School in Paris and,
from my three-year course there, developed a passion for
I have won medals and prizes for my work during my many
exhibitions (Paris, the provinces, Japan).
The ATELIER D.Z '
ARTS is both a gallery and a studio. A rigid adherence to
rules is banished; everything is permitted. I only create
original pieces but can adapt to the requirements of a
commissioned piece of sculpture or stained glass.
Stained-glass window corners, images, sculptures…
I am happy to share my personal universe and its poetic
expression with visitors.
Philosophy BRINGING A RAW MATERIAL TO LIFET: Over the years my
passion for stone has remained intact; a desire to transform
it, to dominate - but not force - it, to give it life, to
become one with it. I manipulate, assemble, mix, fusion
volumes and materials (stone, wood, copper, glass and other
objects) to create original works.
I love seeing the harmony and union of materials mixed
together, seeing glass resist the power of rock, resin resist
wood, copper resist glass thereby creating a harmonious blend
of contrasting materials respectful of their mixed origins.
