I was born April 15th 1993 in France.
As a child I discovered a passion for drawing and painting through the pictures of Gustave Doré, Quentin Blake, Maurice Sendak, symbolist painters, that made me quickly decide that I would be an illustrator. After obtaining a degree in Literature and Arts, I entered the Pivaut school where I studied illustration and painting.
While in school, I worked with great artists such as Benjamin Lacombe and Marc Chalmé, who rooted my will to make picture books.
In 2016 he published his first picture book, Un beau voyage, and since then I’m still writing and illustrating books for children.
Beside my work as an illustrator, I started in 2017 a serie of queer portraits, by taking pages from magazines and painting over them. What started as a little bit of fun turned into a real project when I decided to move to Berlin and get closer to the queer scene.
My interest for genders, drag, fashion, photography but also painting, textures, colours, light and shapes lead me to question the portrait itself, in both political and pictural perspectives.
“I said anything I wanted because I don’t believe in children. I don’t believe in
childhood. I don’t believe that there’s a demarcation. ‘Oh you mustn’t tell them
that. You mustn’t tell them that.’ You tell them anything you want. Just tell
them if it’s true. If it’s true you tell them.”
