BIOGRAPHY
I am a Franco-Canadian concept artist, illustrator & sculptor. I grew up spending all my summers in a remote hillside village in France and all my winters in bustling Vancouver. Over the course of seven years I studied illustration, graphic design, film and animation in Canada, France and England and now I work in film, video games and animation, allowing me to continue nourishing my insatiable passion for visual storytelling.
