all engravings are made by hand without using a pneumatic chisel or pantograph


I started my engraving path by passing an entrance examination at a prestigious school of art such as the “Boulle school”  and in choosing a speciality that lead me to copper-plate engraving.  The work on copper or brass using burin enables the creation of high quality, professional prints. This scholl has helped me to study volume,  drawing and has enriched my methods of research and creation.

From information to education, chance led me to the Leon Mignon school (Belgium), at the section engraving on arms. I worked there the steel with a hammer-graver, but also the inlay, the chasing, the bottom-hollow and the animalist scenes. Those educations combine creation and realisation.

Two training courses that combine creation and realization.

Today, my passion for engraving reconciles engraving on weapons, on jewelry and luxury watches but also on all metal objects.

The engraving becomes majestic by the creation of the drawing making each project unique.

I also express my art in drawing and animal prints but also in my painted works.
