I first discovered my passion for pottery as an art student in college. At that moment, I envisioned myself owning my own pottery shop one day. Fresh out of college, I rushed back to my roots, to the peacefulness and to simplicity of rural life in the Ottawa valley where I knew that I would easily set up shop. Just a few years later, I was the proud owner of Campbell’s Bay’s first pottery shop.
Shortly after being settled in, I began to study ancient pottery and experimented with the local natural clay. Since then, I have distinguished myself as the local earthenware potter, solely dedicating my production to creating a unique local pottery for collectors from around the world.
With time, what was to become the driving spirit behind my pottery came while I was progressing in improving my work. I stumbled upon ancient Celtic pottery techniques, which brought me to discover ancient Celtic society, early Celtic christianity and (not deliberately) druidic wisdom. The simplicity of their ancient wisdom quietly inspired me, plunging me into a new perspective, re-focusing my attitude behind what later became ‘Atelier du Druide’. From that point on, I redesigned the way I conveyed my artwork, my creativity and my self-expression. Today I have not only become a potter, but also a modern-day druid.
