1948 Born in the suburb of Paris, France. Started painting as a child. As a trainee of Biodynamic agriculture he worked in different farms in France and Germany, and deepened his knowledge of anthroposophy through the direct experiences.
1967 Moved to Germany where he encountered Mr. & Mrs. Willmann, his teachers. A few years later than this year he started working as an art therapist at a psychological therapy clinic Friedrich Husemann where he offered wood carving and basket weave for patients as a treatment, while he learned special hatching technique from Inge Willmann. This technique in art was initially developed by Assia Turgenieff, a student of Rudolf Steiner. Moreau further developed this technique in his representative works of wax crayon painting.
