After graduating from Harrow College of Art with a BA in
Illustration I went on to illustrate children's books in the UK.
I then moved to New York City where I worked as an art director for an ad agency specializing in magazine ads.
It was interesting being in a position where illustrators were knocking on my door for a change!
I later got into the animation business, where I painted background scenery and supervised painting departments for television shows and movies.
While living in New York, I discovered the vicarious pleasures of travel through map making.
I've been lucky to work with a diverse range of art directors and book designers.
I have written and illustrated several picture books.
I illustrate books, magazines, games, products.
Born in France, I grew up in Europe, Southeast Asia, the Far East, the Middle East, and now live in coastal South Carolina with my family.
