How did you get started doing what you do?
I graduated from the Parisian school Duperré, I followed a design training with a specialisation in textiles and materials research. Right after my studies, in 2009, I started as a freelance designer and artist. I started to work with a few brands and now after 7 years I have done work for many companies, including Lancôme, Bulgari, Guerlain, Adidas, and Tag Heuer. I also do personal work — paper sculptures — which I sell in galleries.
How would you describe your creative style?
If I had to define my work in three words, I would use color, pattern and paper. What I like about paper is its flexibility, I’ve worked with paper for a long time and there is always a new way to use it. It’s a material which offers many textures, aspects, and colors, and I like to mix all these possibilities.
What’s your inspiration?
The inspiration can come from anything, an exhibition, a book, an advert. I try to vary my trend inspirations because I want to propose something new for every project, to try something I’ve never done. I do lots of research, samples and try more complicated shapes, new graphic designs, colors or materials to find new orientations.
What is art to you?
I think art is a way to express our own vision.
How long does it typically take for you to finish a piece?
There is no rule, every project or piece is different. It can take 3 days or 3 months, 10 hours or 60 hours.
What’s your dream project?
A dream project looks like a “white card” -I don’t know if it’s the correct translation. A project where I can do anything I want.
What art supplies do you use?
Paper of course. A lot of X-Acto blades, glue, scotch tape, cutting boards, pencil, ruler, computer.
What’s your process like?
I have four steps in my work process. The first one is to find the concept, an idea. Second, to create the graphic design. Third, choose the color matchings. Then the last step is the production in paper and volume.
