Get in touch
- An architect turned into illustrator, her work is characterized by a vivid storytelling with simple, clear lines and warm colors that combine the Art Deco of the 20s with the French Ligne Claire comics style (KCMA Museum, Seoul)
- As a self-taught illustrator she didn't learn to draw in a conventional way. She drew on all her experiences to develop her style. Her work in contemporary architecture has led her to the minimalist style that defines her today. She usually makes her illustrations with thick outlines and a clear line. Her colors are pure, isolated from each other, and often reveal the texture of pencils (Galerie Robillard)
