I graduated from the art school Emile Cohl in Lyon in 2007, with a degree in illustration. I've been working as a freelance illustrator since then, producing children's book illustrations for various publishers in several countries, France, UK, USA, Australia, Korea. (Client list includes Penguin books, Ladybird books, Bloomsbury, Capstone, Hinkler books, Oxford university press etc.) I always had a passion for drawing and painting, especially for illustration. It is for me a unique way to express and share, with my own sensitivity. It is a language on its own, and i love that! My favorite technique is drawing ink with quill line, and color pencils for the finishing touches.
