light on the water

Matthieu wrote to us expressing a very touching and personal account of his passions and way of thinking. Following a heartbreaking tragedy involving the loss of his younger sister, he has come to believe that happiness is not something you reach, it is a state of mind, a choice. 

Inspired by a poignant text of the Dalai Lama, it is these small details that give meaning and fulfilment to Matthieu's life, in a world where this attitude is seldom embraced. 

It is this mindset that has enabled Matth to move forward, together with his brother, which we depicted below, as well as his immense love of nature. Having been contaminated by travel from an early age, Matth has always loved to live outside, ensuring that water is never too far away and where he can gather time to think amongst the changing colours of the leaves. Stemming from his father's vinyl collection, his passion for music will continue throughout his life.
