Initially a translation graduate, Émilie moved in London in the early 00s to work as a translator/editor. Realising copying and pasting for 40 or so hours a week wasn't quite her calling, she moved onto graphic design in 2005 and attended University of the Arts. She then worked in graphic design agencies before moving back to the French Alps in 2010.


Her graphic design style is heavily influenced by modernism and the Bauhaus - with its stark beauty and curves. She likes to take a little inspiration from the works Kandisky, Klee or Mondrian to curb its slight austerity and give it dynamism.

She has been drawing since a very early age, first on a big backboard her dad made her, then scribbling every inch of her school notebooks with a Biro. 

Her illustrations depict humanity in all its shapes and sizes. Despite being into making pretty dresses and beautiful princesses like many a little girl, as she grew up she got increasingly interested in representing the people deemed 'ordinary'. Their looks, clothing, personality traits and life stories reflected in their facial expressions.She draws people you will not see in magazines but that you might encounter on the streets, in the supermarkets - sometimes taken from her imagination but always inspired by real life : from her childhood in a small French town in the 1980s, to her teenage years, to her London life as as twenty-something. Cafés, streets, workmates but also reality TV and shopping centres are her source of inspiration. 

When she isn't designing anything, Émilie spends several hours a week torturing French natives with irregular verbs and present perfect lessons - ie. she also teaches English for a living.
