French-born Australian, I started my artistic career as a freelance illustrator in Paris and moved to Sydney in 1995 where I continued working for both advertising and publishing industry.
I am also a children’s book illustrator. My books have been published in Australia, China and South Korea.
However, my work is not restricted to illustration. In 2015, I graduated of the National Art School with a BFA in Printmaking.
