Ghyslaine was born in Cahors, France, and currently lives in Toulouse. As a child she loved children’s books and comics. After studying at the School of Fine Arts in Toulouse, she began her career in children’s publishing, illustrating games, stories, and articles, following which, she also illustrated novels and fiction. Medieval art and Italian painters of that period inspire her to create textured and subtly-colored, atmospheric artwork in mixed media. She is always thinking about what she’d like to do next.
