I am Fanny, a visual development artist and illustrator from Montréal (QC), Canada.
I have been happily working in the entertainment industry for 14 years. From miniature set builder for the National Film Board of Canada (Higglety Pigglety Pop!) to 3D environment artist and matte painter on major Hollywood productions (Arrival, X-Men Apocalypse, Beauty and the Beast, Jupiter Ascending), and in more recent years as a concept artist for TV (Zafari, The Beachbuds) and Feature animation (Fireheart, 10 Lives), I've had the chance to work on a variety of exciting projects in a handful of different roles.
My creative adventures came to a proverbial fork in the road in 2019, when I decided to quit my last studio job in order to start my freelance career.
I now offer services in visual development and illustration to animation studios, publishers and other creative businesses.

As a kid I grew up in the suburbs of Montreal, QC and spent most of my time exploring the forest and riverside that formed our backyard. Building cabins in the woods, chasing grasshoppers and butterflies, collecting wildflowers and observing squirrels and birds formed the tapestry of my earliest childhood memories.
My family took my little brother and I on many camping and fishing adventures and that nurtured my love for nature and wildlife, opening my eyes to the many wonders this world has to offer.
Reading, drawing and quiet observation were my weapons of choice in the human world, which often felt strange and scary to me as a kid. It still does sometimes.
I now live happily with my husband, daughter and our rescue dog Kyra on the North Shore of Montreal where I work from my lovely home studio.
To this day, my favourite things in the world are beautiful books, nature, exploring new places, petting any dog that will let me, good food and warm tea.
