Since I was a little girl I wanted to be an illustrator, with plan B as marine biologist as I’m fascinated by sea creatures and love water activities. I ended up the former and still have to combine these passions in a book on the aquatic world!

I like experimenting and mixing different digital and traditional techniques and materials, such as watercolors or collage. I am inspired by many different things and find in getting lost in streets and looking at architectures and landscapes, a constant source of creativity, I always discover on travels new details and places of beauty that end up feeding my work.
