From a very young age, I had a love and appreciation for art. I would sit for hours watching my Grandfather as he told a story through his brush strokes, creating beautiful landscapes in oil. I went on to study art in college and began my career as a staff artist in advertising. After starting a family, I turned to freelance work and found my real calling when I was blessed with a commission to paint the Stations of the Cross for my church in California. From that point on, I knew what my life's work was supposed to be, to use God's gift to the best of my abilities.
I grew up in the Adirondacks of New York state and started drawing at 3 according to my Mother.

Nature is my favorite subject, its simplicity on one side and complexity on the other. I view the world as a puzzle, each piece being necessary.

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.
In 2012 I decided to try something new by creating my own publishing house/shop EXUVIA. I released in 2014 my third artbook Opale 1 under this label. Opale 2 will be available in 2022.
My art career journey began in 1992 after graduating from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. I started working for a local giftware company and there was nothing better than designing and drawing all day.
Later I worked for a company restoring old vintage photos with traditional airbrush and colored pencils. Our art department provided us with Photoshop and I started learning to paint digitally.
In 2003 I learned to create websites and posted some of my fantasy and faery artworks. This opened up a whole new world for me.
I'm glad to be back creating art again and I am filled with great gratitude everyday.
