Born and raised in rural France  and moved to Tokyo in 2004. After spending 19 years in more or less interesting companies, I decided to quit my job to become a  freelance illustrator in August 2018.  My first orders were for a french restaurant in Tokyo (Tiles and artworks) , CD jackets for an independent Japanese label, and illustrations for corporate marketing material. In december 2019, my first picture book was published in Japan by gendaishokan. It illustrates the lyrics of a famous japanese song from 1988 called 'Aozora' interpreted by The Blue Hearts. After 1 week, due to the success of the book, a 2nd edition was made. I will visit the Bologna Children Book fair this year as my book will be presented there.
I sell prints as well as my original works. Don't hesitate to contact me:). 
In terms of 20th century artists I admire the most: Moebius , Caza, Yooko Tadanori, Namio Harukawa, Francis Bacon, Fela Kuti, Chiaki Naomi, Oum Kalsoum, Oyang Fei Fei, Mulatu Astatke, Farid El Atrache, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, John Coltrane and many many more!
