Artist, Fashion Illustrator & Textile Print Designer
Portfolio website

I started to study fashion at 16, learning to sew and to make clothes in the region I am originally from in France, before moving to Paris. My purpose has always been to draw; I studied fashion design and got a diploma of Styliste/Designer. Still in Paris, I worked as a leather fashion designer for a French brand and as a stylist for French TV before leaving La Ville Lumière for the Italian fashion capital, as I really love Italian atmosphere, culture and language. Since then, I am based in Milan and do what I am most passionate about; in other words, drawing and painting. There, I decided to set up my own business to put my passion for hand drawn illustration at the service of companies and have since worked on various projects related to illustration and textile print design. In illustration, I like to dwell on the details and use the patience required as a meditative exercise to always remain in a state of inner peace and calm. I define my art as being fine and delicate. My beloved techniques are pencil - very well sharpened -, watercolor and ink. Feel free to contact me to talk about these topics, to ask me any question regarding my work and to discuss a possible collaboration!
