I’m an illustrator and Concept Artist. I was born in France and moved to Canada when I was 11 years old. After high school, I attended architecture school at Lawrence Institute of Technology in Southfield Michigan for a year before enrolling at the Center for Creative Studies – College of Art and Design (CCS) in Detroit where I received my BFA in illustration in 1990. While there I also took various fine art and industrial design courses. I started out doing advertising work for local agencies with clients ranging from Little Caesar’s pizza to big automotive clients such as Ford, Chrysler, GM and Toyota – doing a lot of marker storyboards, comps and finished gouache paintings for brochures and posters. I liked the fast pace of the ad industry which helped me to develop speed and confidence in my work. The first movie I worked on was Spawn in 1996. It was then that I knew I wanted to explore concept design for other movies. I have been very fortunate to work on some of Hollywood’s biggest projects including the Star Wars prequels and the Matrix trilogy.
