Amélie, the enchanted illustrator
I grew up and lived in France for 21 years before settling in Montreal for three years. Then I decided to set off on a new adventure and moved to Lausanne, where I have now been living for almost three years. I studied photography, then graphic design and became passionate about illustrating when I got to Canada. For me, illustrations tell stories that are freely interpreted by the reader. I created dreamlike worlds in which one can escape. My work aims at providing a different perspective of everyday life, familiar landscapes and one’s own daily environment.
« For me, Lausanne is… the love of nature combined with the love of charming spots. I discover it every day through its local cafés, the different perspectives that open out onto the lake and its cultural diversity. I feel good in Lausanne, having a last found a town that really suits me and stimulates my creativity. »
