So you want
to know a little about me?


I was born and raised in France where I studied illustration at Emile Cohl Art School in Lyon and visual communication at Cours Bessil, Montpellier. After graduating in 2005, I was hungry for adventure so I packed my bags and travelled far, far away. My travels around the world ended in Hobart, Tasmania, where I have worked as a freelance illustrator since 2010.

in 2012 -2013, while keeping on freelancing I studied a Diploma In Graphic Design in Tasmania to refresh my skills. 

While finishing my diploma, I worked as a design  intern at Futago for 9 months where I learnt a lot about working within a team, which helped my design skills grow consequently. I loved learning a collaborative approach and process and integrated a lot of it in my freelance practice. 

I have also worked with several graphic design studios, as a freelance illustrator and sometimes designer. 

In 2016 I joined  Creative Hum  as a part time graphic designer and was there for a year.

And in 2017 I kept working on freelance projects while I lived in Indonesia and Europe.

I am currently touring China and Japan with Terrapin Puppet Theatre, drawing live for a show called "You and Me and the Space Between". 


The other thing you'll need to know about me is that I am most happy exploring new places, meeting people and challenging myself. I am rarely without means to draw within arms reach and often spend my free time doodling for both practice and pleasure.

A few other things that make me happy (in no specific order):

  • My cat, Walnut
  • Riding motorbikes
  • My friends
  • Swimming in the ocean
  • Walking in nature
  • Chasing summer
  • Drawing monsters

Speaking of monsters, I have written and illustrated children's books and run my side project, Captain Blueberry. I have published two books so far and plan to write more. I am regularly invited to schools to do book readings and monster presentations... fun times!

Hot tip:
When I say my own name in English, it comes out sounding like 'rochelle'. You're welcome to pronounce it the same way. Or not.
