I am an lllustrator and Graphic Designer  with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and Bachelor of Graphic Design from Quebec, I have also been trained in Paris. From stationery and greeting cards to textiles and children's book illustrations, I  have researched various media and, since 2012  my surface design artwork has been in demand around the world.

As a surface design illustrator I am having fun spreading love with positive energy and happiness in my work.  My mission is making people dream and smile with my daily products. I love to create art to feel good.

Traveling and discovering new cultures always made me feel refreshed and stimulated me to create new things. Not only do I draw my content from botanical and animal worlds, as well as from the realm of fairytales, but I also draw my inspiration from my real life experiences. With my sense of delicacy and playfulness, I continue to explore art in my daily life.
