Hello, I’m Isabelle, a graphic designer with a passion for photography
I live on Sydney’s beautiful Northern Beaches since my arrival in Australia in the year 2000, after having spent a decade in Asia (Malaysia and Cambodia). Before that, I lived in Switzerland for four years, after completing my studies in Strasbourg, France. Most of my childhood and teenage years were spent between France and Germany with the exception of a four year stay in Greece.
I am French, speak English and German fluently as well as some Italian and Bahassa Malaysia. I am married to a New Zealander and we have two adult girls.
I worked nearly twenty years in foreign trade, holding various positions from PA, accountant, office manager to researcher and event manager with the French Trade Commissions (the equivalent of Austrade in Australia).
Desiring to stay in Australia, I resigned from the diplomatic services and I was then able to embark on a dream trip around the Australian continent with my family, home-schooling our girls for one year. After this incredibly enriching experience, I decided to make a book about this trip and started teaching myself the Adobe InDesign and Photoshop software which eventually led me to a proper graphic design course (TGDS) an Australian RTO registered school.
I am now a graphic designer with a certification IV in Design. I discovered that designing can be really fun and rewarding.
Photography is another passion of mine and I love any project involving beautiful images. In my spare time, I enjoy drawing, painting and having fun with digital art.
