Creation and Drawings have always been central elements in my life. As far as I can remember, I always wanted to dedicate my life to these passions. Ever since I was little, I draw.
Graduated at the High School of Fine Arts in Illustration*, I began my career as a Children Books’ illustrator.
So far, I have carried out the illustrations for a dozen different kind of books (for children and adults), in particular with the Editions “L’Ecole des Loisirs”. I made also many drawings on order (portraits, wall paintings, announcements…)
Over a decade, I pursued several professional paths. Parallel to a half-time job as an art teacher and the development of my career as an Illustrator, I undertook training in Art-Therapy during 6 years. My passions for Art, Human and Therapy were naturally fulfilled in this instruction.
Alongside, I have also developed a personal mixed media artwork with several exhibitions across Belgium.
My canvasses are inspired by my world explorations: the inner world and the outside world.
My “inner world” is full of colors, emotions, movements, nature and a kind of magic, inspired by the “outside world”. The “outside world” renewed a permanent enthusiasm, wonder and curiosity in my “inner world”.
This dialogue between my inner and the outside world mainly began during my first solo trip in India when I was twenty. There, my travel book, my pencils and my colors were my only “buddies”.
Since then, I’m used to draw all over the world in my travel books. In my drawing books, I capture the emotions, the images and the feelings of my trips. Fascinated by the whole Humanityin its similarities and its differences, my canvasses are inspired by these Wonders.
