How would you describe your work?

Along with my cabinet making contracts, I like to create fun little objects that arouse the curiosity of young and old alike; rattlebacks, leaf concertos and a thousand other projects that I hope one day to have the time to create! I pay particular attention to the aesthetics of my creations and to the use of local wood from an eco-forestry network (Exceptional wood ) with which I participate in my region.

As a craftsman, what do you get out of being part of the cooperative?

L'Empreinte is a network of artisans who have a common project: to promote local purchasing and to make a living from it. It's instructive to get involved in its operations, it's inspiring to rub shoulders with passionate artists and it's gratifying to welcome all these visitors from around the world who marvel at our boutique and our products!

Do you have a memory or a memorable moment related to the cooperative that you would like to share with us?

The most memorable are the 40th and the 45th anniversaries of our co-op. It's at these moments that you become aware of the full scope of the project. To see again the former members who once contributed to this building, and who have fond memories of it. Being a member of L'empreinte is a true life experience.
