A Neverland dweller

I'm a flâneuse and exploration is a key element of my creativity, weather it is a new technique, a trip abroad or simply chasing the sunset around the streets of the small town where I live.
My website says that I'm a children's illustrator and this is indeed what I do for a living, but in my spare time I’m a printmaker, I play with collage and I spend a lot of time experimenting, failing, learning new tricks and cleaning up the debris that this process leaves behind. My humble tribute to dust bunnies!
I’m mostly inspired by nature and I’m avid an collector of small, forgotten things like wooden toys and paper ephemera that I often use in my collages. Unlike many of my colleagues, I don’t like to draw when I’m on a trip. I prefer my quiet room where all the things I found in the outside world convey, taking a different shape, filtered by a partial memory and a heavy dose of coffee and nostalgia.

    I've worked in children's publishing for most of my professional life. In my spare time I love to print and create small original pieces for collectors around the world.

Frequently asked questions
What is tetrapak printing?

Dry-point etching is one of the oldest printing techniques and is usually achieved by scratching a drawing on a metal plate. I use tetrapak instead because it's softer, less expensive and it's a nice way to recycle milk and juice boxes.
However, it's a fragile material and I can usually get only 7/10 prints out of the same plate. Compared to other printing techinques, these are very small runs and each print will be almost one-of-a-kind.
