I’m a French independent illustrator and graphic designer based on Nantes ( France).


2. Tell us about your aesthetic.

I have graphic work. Sometimes I am close to the BD, I create characters and short stories. Sometimes, my work focuses more on the general composition and balance between shapes and colors. Maybe that my feature is the wood, I make a lot of drawing with wood. I like it.

Drawing because it’s a more accessible medium, you need a paper and pencil. I like to do something else too but I’m basically drawing. But he most important is the idea, after, you chose the medium that suits you.

I draw some sketches in my notebook until I am satisfied. After I work on clean paper or on software. When I am tired of one of them I pass to the other.

I’ve studied in an applied art school then in a faculty of art, at last, I’ve studied in a school of fine Art at Le Mans.
