– How did you get the idea to do this job? Is it a little girls dream?
This is not a little girls dream, because I've been drawing forever. At
home, with my sisters we drew the same drawing. At school, I was asked to do
a portrait of the class which was then hung on the wall. I remember that I
did a little makeover of my mates who were not the most beautiful.
– What are your strategy against the blank page?
Listen to music and draw quickly. Look at pictures.
– What or who inspired you?
In general, I get my inspiration from fashionable girls and also by designs
that I have admired when I was little. It goes from Bretécher to Paulette.
– Do you get inspired a lot by Catwalks?
Yes quite a lot. My first works were illustrated reports from catwalks.
– How do you proceed? Are you drawing on paper or on computer?
When I draw on the computer, I start with the hair. I love drawing hair!
Then roughly I draw the pose that gives movement to the drawing and
subsequently it will be refined.
– Of all your illustrations, which one is your favourite?
The portrait of model Caroline Trentini, I had designed for the magazine
³French². Every time I see it, I find it beautiful.
– Who was your first illustration for?
I think it was for Cosmopolitan or Jeune et Jolie. It was a bit of both at
the same time. This first order was the ultimate joy.
Then there were the reports about the shows I did for the Figaroscope. It
was François Simon who had ordered them.
– And the last one you made?
I'm doing an erotic book that will be released in June.
– Who is the most inspiring designer for your drawings?
At the moment, I like Kenzo. His style is colourful and the cuts are
But the one who inspires me the most, I really do not know.
I am undecided on that issue!
Thank you Marie. See you soon.
