I COME FROM A FAMILY OF ARTISTS WHERE FAMILY GATHERINGS OFTEN INVOLVE SKETCHBOOKS.
My dad is an animator, my granddad was a cartoonist and apparently my great granddad drew machine parts for steam engines. My uncle is a cartoonist, my brother draws and animates… so does my cousin. My 6 year old daughter says her favorite thing is drawing and judging from my 3 year old son’s enthusiasm for marking up our walls, I imagine I’ll be hearing that from him soon too.
I studied graphic design at L'Ecole Supérieure D'Arts Graphiques in Paris, France where I met my husband Vincent. Together we moved back to LA where I worked at Disney Feature Animation for 10 years designing for Tangled, Frozen and Enchanted among other films. In 2013, I left to work independently, telling my own stories through words and pictures. My first children's book Once Upon A Cloud came out in 2015 and my second book, Little Big Girl will be coming out fall 2016. We live in Venice Beach, California with our two kids, Matisse and Roman.
