This lovely, heartfelt vignette is the contribution of young french artist Veronique Joffre. Veronique graduated from Ecole Estienne in Paris and Ecole des Arts Décoratifs in Strasbourg, and started her career as an illustrator just three years ago. Currently working on commisioned illustrations for french children’s book publishers, some of her published works include La chèvre de monsieur Seguin (Lito), Comptines et berceuses (collectif, Milan) and et Contes du Monde (collectif, Amaterra). But Veronique's true dream is to write her own stories to accompany her pictures. Besides a recent commission from the Puppet Museum of Lyon, Veronique’s artwork has been included in the Totoro Forest Project, Gallery Nucleus, and L’affiche Moderne as well as the highly regarded Sketchtravel project. With her collages Veronique doesn’t like to know where she’s going at first, prefering to be surprised by chance, letting shapes and colors create her stories almost on their own.
