Soon after I was born in 1979, my parents bought a ruined house in a tiny village near La Rochelle (France). While they worked on renovations, I grew up around farms and nature, spending my time drawing, building tree houses and dreaming of travels and adventure.

In 1992, after the births of my brother and sister, we all moved to a village near Perpignan. I studied arts in Nîmes high school , University in Toulouse and I was graduated from the College of visual arts in Strasbourg in 2004.

Then, I moved to Lyon and started working as a freelance illustrator. I also produced projects as a documentary illustrator., this allowed me to travel in Polynesia, Australia, French Guyana and Amazon forest, where I worked a lot.

In 2009, as part of one of these documentary projects, I came to Tokyo. It was a cultural choc, everything was so different, I was fascinated by the culture… I decided finally to set up home here.

I live now in Tokyo where I work as an author & illustrator, surrounded by my husband Issei Fujita (isseifujita.com) and our two daughters Nami and Saya.
