I was born in 1990 in the south of France. I've started drawing early and found it to be a true passion that could only lead to a career. I then entered and art school (ECV) and studied for five years get my master degree my passion growing everyday and my skills getting more and more defined.

I work digitally and traditionally, from watercolor to Photoshop's magic, there is no wrong way to do art : only the beauty of the result matters. I am detail oriented and like to bring projects to life.

I like to dive myself into things, it can be a book, a movie, going on road-trips or hiking, to appreciate life the best possible way, to experiment in art as well as in cooking, my guilty pleasure !
