Freelance illustrator born in August 1980, I live in a small city near Paris. I create illustrations for book covers, I've worked for many publishing houses around the world, concept arts for video game industry and tutorials, work in progress for several magazines specialized in 2d.
In 2007, I published my first artbook " Elixir 1 ", a collection of illustrations with short stories, followed by the second volume in 2010. The worlds I'm trying to create through my illustrations are fantasy based, my favourite subject, but I always add a touch of classicism and romanticism, mixing styles brings more realism to the painting.
Drawing has always been a huge part in my life, since my childhood. Becoming a professional illustrator was not obvious, it happened quite by mistake and later.
After studying History of Art and Archeology at the Sorbonne, I went to a 3d school where I discovered digital illustration. Photoshop and Painter offer almost total freedom of creation, I love being able at any time to crop, change colors, light, remove or add details.
I started to work as a freelance illustrator in 2005, by trading my pens and paper for Photoshop and a Wacom graphic tablet.
