Ars longa, vita brevis.

Hi, I’m Paul. I was born in Lyon, France. I have been drawing as far as I remember.

Seduced by the intricate worlds created by H.R. Giger, John Blanche and Clive Barker -among many others- I decided that I, too, wanted to become an illustrator and never turned back on the decision.

After a few twists and turns I graduated in 2017 from the University of the Arts Helsinki with a Masters degree in Painting.

At the same time I have been expanding my digital skills through self-study, using online platforms such as Schoolism and Pluralsight in order to solidify my skills in concept art and visual development.

Aside from drawing or teaching I am one half of Twinscale Studio,  a brand new outsourcing illustration and game art studio. Be sure to check us out!

Do you have a project that needs fresh input and craftsmanship? I would love to hear about it.
