Bio

Welcome to my website!


I am Catherine, illustrator based in Paris. I have been working for several years with coloured pencils in a realistic style and soft colours.


Fascinated by Rhythmic Gymnastics since ever, I have created galleries of movement sketches and portraits to share my passion through my drawings. RG is for me Art in Motion and allowed me to show what I could offer in particular.

 

First of all, the emotions I felt in front of some gymnastic routines gave me the desire to try to reproduce on paper a part of these marvellous choreographies, to have the sensation of seeing the movement again. Also, each gymnast has a personality, a morphology, a way of moving, a characteristic style. From my research of sketches was born the gallery "movement", which represents passages of sequences which marked me.

I took then my coloured pencils to work on highlighting expressions and details in my "portraits" gallery. I try to highlight each face, each personality, to bring out the best in them.

I started practicing RG during my art studies, after having started dancing at 5 years old. I was able to evolve in group and individual. 12 years of experience as an illustrator in digital learning have allowed me to illustrate a wide variety of subjects. I now produce personalized  portraits. Gymnastics, groups, families, children, animal portraits and various subjects.

 

 

I do my best to create memories that move you, with all my sensitivity. I will be delighted to accompany you in the realization of your project. Feel free to contact me!
