Specialist in creation, casting, conservation and restoration of
Biologist first, I then learnt preservation and animal mounting techniques. I also acquired and developed casting methods, especially for specimens hard to stuff. Together with sculpture and
modelling, it allows the creation from scratch. In parallel, restoration of "stuffed" animals but also all items of biological origin (naturalia: bones, teeth, horns, wood, shells,
insects, fossiles etc.) needs skills related to art restoration.
These techniques are transposable to other types of collections (anthropological, archaeological, ethnographic...).
