“I never had a specific intention, I never know what the result will be, I just draw and make collages, because it’s a need, that’s my only way to clear my head and relax. My inspiration is life all around. Life, emotion, death, nature…”, says the artist.
After graduating from the Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels Géraldine worked as a graphic designer in various advertising agencies for 7 years. Towards the end of 2006, She started to work as a freelance illustrator. She did not felt like she was leaving behind the graphic design world but rather she was able to see & bring some graphic design elements into her illustrations. The two are inevitably linked for her. Her approach is pretty simple, she tries her best to transcribe emotions, find a perfect balance through the collages without falling into the trap of over-using Photoshop or other effects .
