If you know a little bit about my work, you’ve noticed that the Animal Patterns have become kind of my trademark overtime. I just love drawing them.
In visual arts, a pattern, or a motif is a repetition of decorative elements. Their aesthetics come from the regular or irregular rhythm of shapes and colors. By using a regular grid of irregular elements, I create animal patterns that are soothing, pretty and fun.
I started the animal patterns with the drawing of the hens which shows 42 chicken breeds from France. Then I did some tests on sheep with a little more decoration, corgis with a little more detail, and cat breeds. I kind of set things right with the otter pattern. From now on, the collection grows regularly with new animal motifs.

Animal Motif : Foxes
Guinea pigs pattern
It is typically the exotic animal for Europeans that becomes an almost everyday sight when you move to Canada 🙂 Unlike squirrels, raccoons have not lost their magic for me. Even after saving one from the trash.
22 adorable Donkeys.
When I paint animal motifs, I slip in small references. For this particular watercolor, I painted the cats of my twitter subscribers as well as some famous cats.
