Hello ! My name is Ophélie, I’m a French illustrator and I was born in Guatemala. I live and I grew up, in the city of wine, Bordeaux in France.
I illustrate characters and little cats through severals worlds and universes. I’m inspired by nature, childhood and dreamlike worlds. I love the
presence of nature in Ghibli's animations, and I love the beautiful stories from Pixar’s studios.
I always drawn during my life, I’ve choose artistic studies, and one day, I’ve made an internship when I was at the university, with an indepedant
illustrator Lola Draloug, she makes me discovered the illustrator profession, and I just had a click ! I wanted to do that too !
So, after my degree, I’ve became a freelance illustrator ! I work with publishing house, children book, but I love work on personnal commissions
too. I love colors and I try to create soft and colorful illustrations. Digital drawing is my biggest media, but I like work with watercolors, serigraphy
or linogravure, sometimes.
I have two beloved cats, Phoebus and Gaïa , but I dream to have a Shiba Inu !!
I like watching a lot of movies and animations, I love listening music all day when I work: classical, rock, pop, rap, Disney songs.. Yes always ! I
play piano when I have time, I love to sing and to dance too :)
Hope you will enjoy my universe !View Full Bio
