Bio:

I am an independent artist / illustrator, and a food lover. I grew up in France and now live in Princeton, NJ.

I draw and paint in a variety of styles, both digitally and with pen, ink and watercolor. I tend to favor clean lines and soft colors.

I find inspiration in the Art Nouveau movement (for shapes), in 50s and 60s illustration (for color and style), and in the Eastern European animation that was popular during my childhood (for lines). Many of my drawings include organic shapes and elements of nature.
