Alette in a few words

Je suis illustratrice indépendante depuis 2016. J'ai beaucoup d'expérience en travaillant avec les maisons d'édition du Royaume-Uni, des Pays-Bas et de Chine. Beaucoup de projets précédents sur lesquels j'ai travaillé sont liés à l'illustration de livres, les couvertures et l'illustration de livres pour enfants.

Je travaille avec des matériaux analogues tels que des peintures à l'aquarelle, des encres et des crayons de couleur et je fournis des numérisations en haute résolution, ce qui permet au client de travailler rapidement et facilement avec moi à distance. Mon travail est coloré, vibrant et j'adore cacher de petits détails dans les illustrations à découvrir.

Maisons d'édition avec lesquelles j'ai travaillé: Quarto Kids, Little Tiger Group, Ladybird, Scholastic, Oxford University Press, Cottage Door Press, Old Dungate Press, Ronshin, Ta Chien Publishing, Gottmer, Van Halewyck, Luitingh Sijthoff

I'm a freelance illustrator since 2016. I have a lot of experience working for publishing houses from UK, The Netherlands and China. A lot of the previous projects I worked on are related to book illustration, covers and children's book illustration.

I work with analogue materials such as aquarelle paints, inks and colour pencil and I provide high resolution digital scans, which makes it quick and easy for the client to work with me on a distance. My work is colourful, vibrant and I love hiding small details in the illustrations for the viewer to discover.

The Jays - illustrated story  - As a freelancer

Paris, France

November 2021 - January 2022 (1 month)

I was asked to illustrate 6 pages for a story about jay birds. I was provided with the manuscript and was let free to come up with the composition and imagery for every page. The illustrations were painted in full colour and covered the full page. The client also asked for an illustrative border that would be used on the title page.
