Born in Province in 1940 from Parisian parents, Michel Pochet lived all his childhood under the hot sun and the ineffable splendor of Corsica. At thirteen, he wanted to become a painter. To help him develop his talent, his mother herself went back to painting, and he got acquainted with her intuitive and sincere watercolour technique, which he would never abandon.
At seventeen, he moved to Paris where he graduated with a degree in Architecture from the best French school. He continued painting, sculpting and writing poems, novels and essays, especially about the relationship between God and Beauty. Several of his books have been translated into Italian, Flemish, German, Portuguese and Spanish.
