Tell us about your business.

I'm a French Illustrator living in California. Passionate about food, I started 2 years ago when I opened my Etsy store. Today, I work with some galleries and stores and accept custom orders. In the future, I would like to license my art. Regarding my process, I do a lot of research, design the art and draw it. Then I scan the page and add some colors and text with the computer. I then print the artwork on a printer with archival paper and inks. I sign and package each print.

Tell us about your workspace, shop, or studio.

I have a quiet studio in the backyard. It has white walls, white furniture and a window from which I see the garden, the trees and the sky. There are two tables. One is empty so I can draw and one is busy with the computer, scanner and archival printer.

What inspires you?

I draw my inspiration from French food, nature and old, vintage French books and posters.

What makes your business stand out?

It's all about French Cuisine and healthy food in a beautiful, fresh and lush way.

What advice would you give an aspiring creative entrepreneur?

Just make it!

What does American Made mean to you?
