Jacques Trovic was born on 15 June 1948 in Anzin at 486 rue Jean Jaurès. His health was fragile and he stayed with his mother and sister who introduced him to canvas and embroidery.
Between the ages of 12 and 14, he emancipated himself from the canvas bought in a haberdashery to produce his first work: "The Spanish Scene", the subject of which he chose himself. It is an embroidery of wool and applied fabrics. Jacques Trovic has found his favourite technique. From that moment on, he will develop a work marked by the profusion of themes and a prolific production. (400 according to Jacques Trovic).
