Who am I

Hi there,

If I would describe myself in a few words, I would use the summary on my Instagram account :

I’m a Belgian woodcarving and woodworking teacher, addicted to the feeling of graphite on paper, a gouge cutting wood, a hull through water, good music…

In more detail this would be :

I am a fourth generation wood joiner on my fathers side and on my mothers side my ancestors earned their money making shoes and sewing clothes.
I had the privilege of inheriting their manual dexterity and their creative spirit.
Paper and wood are my means of expressing my imagination.

I invite you to listen to the dialogues I had with all the pieces of wood you find on my website.

Yours sincerely,
