Bonjour

I’m an illustrator, designer and now ceramic artist currently based in Aix-en-Provence, in the sunny south of France. My array of work goes from the highly-detailed illustration to the bespoke panel of visual identity, with a few forrays in other fields such as this self-designed and self-coded site.

I’m a graduate in graphic design from EPSAA, where I often mixed modern design with manually-painted elements. Since graduating in 2011, I’ve primarily but not exclusively worked as an artist selling prints, originals and derived products of my own work. I’ve also recently set up a Patreon page where you could show your support of my work by becoming one of my patrons! There are no special perks in doing so apart from sustaining the free access of this portfolio.

This hybrid space features both my commissioned and personal works, and while some themes might seem more predominant than others, I’m open for any creative job really! Enquire about my rates through my contact form or email me at messalyn@messalyn.art.

On a side note, my artist name doesn’t derive from the (in)famous empress Messalina, it was sheer coincidence, but I decided to finally owe to the name and based my autoportrait on an actual statue of her and her son Britannicus, which one can find on display at the Louvre museum.
