My automata are fully mechanical storytelling machines, built with recycled wood and a good sense of humor. They all understand poetry.


I am a Belgian storyteller and scenographer. I had to become fifty to find out that I can combine my storytelling and designing skills into livingly automata. Since then I understand my former studies as an Industrial Designer, my storytelling career as a rough and rusty music- and theatermaker, my passion for tribal art and my (musical) love for squeaking, rattling mechanics. With a touch of humour;-)

I keep creating new automata and meanwhile I exhibit the existing ones, touring with them in my Automata Carrousel.

There is more in life than just work.

But as my work comes to life, I hope you can enjoy it.
