Anne-Julie was born in 1980 in a small town in Eastern France. While still very young, she developed a passion for art and crafts. She kept on creating throughout her teenage years to maintain her creative desires.
In 2001, this passion is embodied by her graduation of l'École de l'Image, Fine Arts school (Beaux-Arts) of Épinal, with a specialty in illustration.
In 2005, and after a few years to find her way, Anne-Julie became a freelance illustrator. She worked on commissioned orders for various publishers and her work appeared in various catalogs, books and magazines for children in France and all over the world. At this time, her style was exclusively colorful and dedicated to toddlers.
In 2006, she developed a world that has both a dark side, inspired by the adult she became, and one side bright and colorful, which is a kind of reminiscence of her childhood. Her inspiration comes from her everyday life, people she meets, but also from fairytales, nature, music and movies, and her dreams. The birth of her daughter in Summer 2011 also brings a lot to her world.Her work is particularly appreciated overseas, especially in North and South America. She has participated in numerous exhibitions in the USA. Anne-Julie sells her Art in her Etsy store The Nebulous Kingdom . Besides prints of her illustrations, she creates different kind of accessories and jewelry.
