About

un peu de moi

Hello there! I’m a Surface Pattern designer and Illustrator creating bright, playful and pretty art for home, stationery and accessories.

Here you can find a bit of my world, my thoughts and my feelings. I’m not always very good at words and stories (I’m not an English native, so it can be creative English around here, sorry for that…!), so my blog is more a visual representation of my work and life. And I’m totally ok with that!

I started to study the work of illustration and surface pattern design two years ago, so I’m still a beginner. But aren’t we beginner for life? I always drew since I was a child. I wanted to be a cartoonist when I was young. But life went another way for many years. I may not be the best artist on earth, but what I know for sure is that I’m the best one to tell my story, to share my world and to speak about my inspirations. So here we are! I have several mottos, but my very fist one is “Keep it simple”… So is this blog where I share a variation of personal stories, photos and creative work. My blog is all mine and I love that. I plan to post once every week, but I like to keep my blog fun and non-stressful. Keeping it light and easy held me to stay consistent over the years (my blog was a French blog until recently). If you could love my world too and if magic could do its work, it would be so good! So welcome here!

Thanks for stopping here and taking an interest in my work, it’s always very much appreciated!
