Originally from France, Marylou completed her Masters in Art Direction and Graphic Design at L’ESAG Peninghen in Paris before moving to London in 2012.
She has since collaborated with global brands and agencies, providing illustration for a broad range of digital and print projects. Specialising in character design, bold colours and hand-written typography, Marylou aspires to create artwork that invokes joy with her cheeky and playful style. Above all, Marylou believes in using her skills for good and enjoys working on projects for a strong social or ethical cause
In her latest body of work, created for the exhibition 'Nobody's Baby' in February 2019, Marylou continues her exploration of themes of fearless femininity, creating empowered and independent female figures who exude freedom and ease in their own skins.
“The idea behind my work is to show people that being confident can give you a sense of empowerment. I always try to present my female characters in a similar way – as strong and feminine, in the hope that some of their qualities will reflect on me, as well as my audience. My characters never care about what other people think about them and neither should we”.
