1. What's your story? Where are you from?I come from Normandy in France where I grew up in the countryside. I came later to Paris for studies.
2. Tell us about your aesthetic.I am growing up in a singular style, funny, chic and colorful. I know how to adapt it to any publics. Always in the naivety, I can sometimes be really sweet and poetic for children or use an offbeat and absurd humor for adults. But anyway, my drawings are absorbing you in a nice world which make you feel happy !
3. What is your favourite medium and why?First, i draw with a fine felt-tip pen on paper to think about my idea and then I use to scan it and color it with my tablet Wacom.
4. What is your artistic process like?I never think before to draw. I always draw and then the ideas are coming and moving only with my imagination.

What I really like also with the illustration is that it is a concret art and accessible to everybody.
7. Where did you study?I study in Paris in a National School Art where I learned the traditional technics of fresque and mosaic. Then I did an other formation of one year in illustration. Since 5 years now, I work as a freelance illustrator, first in Paris, now in Madrid.
