ABOUT ME

I am a French illustrator and picture book maker based in Berlin.

I have written and illustrated several books, one of which is Butterfly Child, published in 2022 by HarperCollins and translated into more than ten languages. Using mostly paint or ink, my illustrations are characterised by sweeping strokes and bright colours. My work has been displayed in many exhibitions, including the Bologna Children’s Book Fair “Illustrators Exhibition” and the Society of Illustrators “The Original Art”, as well as in newspapers such as The Telegraph, Süddeutsche Zeitung and Internazionale.
