Born in 1941 in Marseille, Pascal Verbena quickly embarked on a career in the navy. It was during his factions that he began to carve his first figurines.
After his time in the army, Pascal Verbena became a postman and started painting and then sculpting with driftwood recovered from the beaches. In 1978, the artist exhibited for the first time at the Atelier Jacob in Paris. Since then, Pascal Verbena's driftwood figurines have been seen all over the world: from Paris to New York via London and Munich.
