About the artist

Denis Charette has been an intuitive sculptor for over 30 years. He remembers how, at a very young age, he was already attracted to art and culture. Without being taught, he created and made works and objects in all simplicity. It is therefore quite natural that he turned to sculpture as a profession! Sculpture is for him a wonderful way to discover himself. He hopes it will be for you too!
