Inspiring women


* inspiration, artist, biography, portrait *

“Les inspirantes” , or “Inspiring women” in english, is a personal project launched in 2017. I challenged myself to draw portraits of the women who inspire me and whom I admire, whether they are artists, actresses, singers, or entrepreneurs. Portrait is, in my opinion, one of the most complex exercises in illustration, but also one of the most exciting! I always try to find the subtle balance between resemblance and simplicity, between the pure observation of facial features and the rendering of more subjective emotions.

Here, I gather a gallery that mixes techniques and styles. You can also find some videos of my process. Tell me, who is your inspiration?
