I love to tell stories through drawing. I've been selling illustrated puppets and prints since 2005 when I was living in Montreal and selling work as the Pin Pals.
A lot of things changed when I moved to Denver. My fellow pin pal and I were ready to work on our own. I decided to use the name Lac Violon for selling work in my shop. I wanted to create an imaginary town that all my puppets/characters could come from. The name Lac Violon actually belongs to a real lake in Quebec that is special to me. The lake is shaped like a violin.
Each puppet I create has a name and hobby or profession. Josephine plays the guitar, Luis sketches every day and Anna goes to the grocery store (that's a hobby in my book!) Each puppet is printed, cut and assembled from my studio here in Denver.
I also sell cards, zines, original work and prints. Everything is printed in Denver.
I work as an illustrator, creating mostly editorial work. My illustrations have been published in North America, Australia and Japan.
Since my daughter was born, I've been more interested in writing and illustrating children's books. The short zine "Join the Band" is my first attempt at illustration for kids and I'd like to do more.
