I’m an Illustrator from Paris – currently based in Berlin – with 12+ years of experience in the Arts/Design Industry.
I create illustrations for Design & Fashion magazines, Beauty & Luxury brands, as well as for Books, Department Stores, and Newspapers around the world.
I draw inspiration from Oriental cultures, Nature and daily life, and I like to use distinctive color palettes, unusual framing and rich textures to capture emotions and create atmospheric yet bold work.
My background as a Graphic Designer and Art Director brings me good technical knowledge and a deep understanding of how books, magazines, packaging, etc get made.
In my free time, I enjoy cooking, reading self-help books and travelling to tropical destinations whenever possible.
