After studyingFine Arts at Concordia University, Art Education at the University of Quebec in Montreal, and a few yearsas a painter and muralist on the island of Montreal, I took a more solid direction towards youth-illustration with the birth of my son in 2001. In recent years, I have mainly been involved with publishing that is geared towards a youth audience, educational publishing and a bit of advertising as well. I have worked with several Quebec publishers, including Dominiqueet Cie., Imagine, la Bagnole and HMH. I have also worked with such Canadian publishers as Orca Book and AnnickPress. Since 2007, I have worked with Painted-Words which is a New York-based agency for Illustrators. This opportunity has given me access to the U.S. and British markets within the children's publishing industry. I have been able to make both albums and games.


If my style remains traditional, it is mostly in that it is full of poetry. I love being able to translate through drawing the world in which I want to live. I love working light, and different levels and patterns. To create an album, my research work  involves various media and it’s a process that I love, but my favourite aspect will always  be colour. I use mainly watercolours,gouache and oil, which I combine together on watercolour-cardboard.I like watercolour for its lightness, gouachefor its intensity of colours, and oilfor the depth it offers within which I delve with happiness every time. In all, I add a touch of wooden pencil for the details which fly in the wind.
