.. bio ..
Little, I was fascinated by drawing
it was my bridge
between the imaginary and reality..
I started out self taught, sometimes drawing what I saw and othertimes what I visualized..
it has been a long art studying process :
visual art and passion for graphic design,
fascination for old scool painting, flamish, italian, french, from islands..
painting technics for oil and watercolour..
Some reflective moments, some artistic projects
and a long stay in Guadaloupe have strengthened my decision to become an illustrator
I like paper and colors,
I like telling stories, where reality and imaginary are attracted
into a mise-en-abyme...
I like to reach the sensitivity and imagination of the viewer.

What type of projects do I do
I do illustrations for brand identity, advertising, women's, cultural and youth magazines.
I also reply to demands for graphic designs, artwork for musical, events and eco-friendly projects (posters, flyers, CD covers, textile patterns or any graphic design product).
I also do personal demands such as portraits, landscapes, mural paintings.
All projects are welcome and deserve an initial contact !
My illustration technique
I have a preference for all hand done :
watercolor, coloured crayons, inks...
I love to work on realistic drawings with illusive details
and typography all by hand.
I do portrait, landscape or imaginary design
in pointillism, black and white, or colour.
The stages of my creative work
1 - Depending on the agreement beforehand, I start by pencil sketches that I refine
to then present for approval.
2 - I then do a bigger, better quality draft in pencil.
3 - After approval or changes, I start the colorization.
4 - Having finished the illustration, I do a high definition scan and touch up the illustration if necessary,
5 - I deliver the artwork via the internet in the size, colour and quality decided beforehand with the client.
