Welcome to another inspiring Monday!
The artist I am going to feature today is an illustrator extraordinaire, whose world is an incredible, colorful and captivating tale I am sure you are going to enjoy. I first came upon her art journals and have immediately fallen in love with her illustrations and jewelry designs.
A small introduction of the artist in question:
Anne-Julie was born in 1980 in a small town in Eastern France. While still very young, she developed a passion for art and crafts. She kept on creating throughout her teenage years to maintain her creative desires.
In 2001, this passion is embodied by her graduation of l'École de l'Image, Fine Arts school (Beaux-Arts) of Épinal, with a specialty in illustration.
In 2005, and after a few years to find her way, Anne-Julie became a freelance illustrator. She worked on commissioned orders for various publishers and her work appeared in various catalogs, books and magazines for children in France and all over the world. At this time, her style was exclusively colorful and dedicated to toddlers.
In 2006, she developed a world that has both a dark side, inspired by the adult she became, and one side bright and colorful, which is a kind of reminiscence of her childhood. Her inspiration comes from her everyday life, people she meets, but also from fairytales, nature, music and movies, and her dreams.
