Who
I am

I am a Freelance Illustrator and Game Artist working in the editorial and entertainment industry.
Before starting my career as a professional, I first took drawing and painting classes from the age of 8, then I obtained a Diploma in Multimedia Design, a Bachelor in Illustration and finally I specialised in Concept Art in the Los Angeles area at different school such as Gnomon, Concept Design Academy, Red Engine and Laafa. Over my training and professional experience, I have gained traditional and digital art skills that allow me today to be an experienced and versatile artist.
After teaching Digital Painting classes for 3 years at Ceruleum, I am today a Freelance Illustrator and a part-time employee in Graphic Design and Illustration at Hybride Design. In addition to my professional work, I am also dedicated to my personal projects, I am a member of the association PBK9 with which I regularly exhibit my work and I am the co-founder and art director of Colorful Darkness, a 2D point and click video game.
