In 1976 he discovered the Forest of Soignes near Bruxels. He began work on the "Voyage en Arbonie".

In his work he calls upon us to leave our evryday world behind, to enter an imaginary civilisation wich recalls a past where man and mature are one.

Many exhibitions have focused on his work. His sculptures are in manypublic places, in museums and in private collections. The "Fragments od Memory" can be found all over the world.
