Welcome to my DeviantArt Profile!
I am a self-taught, self-trained French artist based in Ireland since 2011.
I have had a long time interest in Celtic culture and many of my drawings are based on Irish legends or mythology. The wind-battered cliffs and the green lonesome glens, the music of the fiddle, the harp and the penny whistle, the old illuminated manuscripts in the dusty libraries and the exquisite Celtic knots, the fern, ivy and moss growing everywhere, the romanticism of it all has always provided me escapism and somehow comfort.
When I feel like a bit of fun, I also like getting inspiration from the vivid and ever cool Old School & Rockabilly universe.
After trying out oil painting and other mediums I favourite watercolour and marker pen for my illustrations as it is quicker and handier. I can also use Illustrator and Photoshop.
I am influenced by Pre-raphaelite and Art Nouveau artists but also great illustrators such as Warwick Goble and John Bauer. As regards to contemporary artists, I like many different pictural styles as long as it conveys emotions. I am particularly fond Chiara Bautista for her true and touching themes, Jessica Albert for her delicate and complex style full of melancholy but I also love Sam Phillips' and Quyen Dinh (ParlorTattooPrints) cool tattoo designs. There are also many other artists I admire that I found through this website (have a look at my favourites if you are curious).
I hope you like my artwork and I'm eager to read your comments and critiques.
