As a way of introducing yourself, who are you and what do you do?
I’m a textile designer for fashion and house—I create pattern designs for lingerie, swimwear, stationery articles, packaging, and house linens. My work is inspired by Eastern influences, toiles de Jouy fabrics, lacework, and stylized floral elements. I’m currently working for various leading trend agencies, lingerie companies, fashion companies, and furnishing industries. Recently, I created a collection of personal illustrations produced in limited editions. In my work, I use the techniques of engraving, digital printing, and screen printing on art paper.
Current city: I live and work between Normandy and Paris, France.
How did you make these?
I draw by hand, then colorize and finalize the work on the computer. I normally use Photoshop. I also draw directly on the computer—it depends on the type of artwork.
Where do you draw your inspiration from?
My graphic designs are dreamlike scenes and illustrate the theme of travel in all its forms, especially the feeling of love. My inspiration comes from personal experiences, human encounters—amorous and sometimes friendly, and places like the beaches of Normandy or tropical islands.
What is the best advice you’ve gotten as an artist or the most important thing you’ve learned?
I have learned that the benevolence and kindness of people around me is paramount for me to be able to create.
