Hi! I’m Marion!
I’m a professional French artist living in Japan. I create Pop Art and realistic pet portraits since 3 years.
I’ve been blessed to complete hundreds of pet portraits for their owners or friends. I love capturing your pet’s uniqueness and will work with you until it’s perfect!
The result is a personalized artwork that will last for many years!
After my studies, I moved to Paris so I could find a nice job and start a normal life (or so I thought).
After 5 years of mainly working unfulfilling jobs and trying to fit in a ”normal” life, I suddenly realized that I had to change my life entirely. So I left for Japan.
I lived in Osaka, Japan with a Working Holiday Visa between April 2015 and April 2016. I worked there as a bartender (without speaking Japanese… ahah) and as a video game tester. This is when I also started my pet portraits business.
After Japan, I went to Australia for another Working Holiday Visa. I stayed there 7 months.
I worked as a waitress in a German restaurant (but everybody noticed my French accent ^^) in Sydney. The pay is surprisingly good in Australia so I was able to save quite a bit of money in 3 months.
Then I went in New Zealand for another working holiday visa. I did a 4 months, 8.000 km road trip.
I was managing my custom portraits business while traveling. I only need my computer and a WiFi connection. I usually worked on the evening on my campgrounds or on public libraries.
Now I’m back in Japan since May 2017. I have more time to focus on my projects. Yeah!
