Véronique Joffre graduated from Ecole Estienne in Paris and Ecole des Arts Décoratifs in Strasbourg, and started her career as an illustrator three years ago. Currently working on commisioned illustrations for french children’s book publishers, some of her published works include La grande légende de Rama et Sita (Rue du Monde), L'arbre ami du bûcheron (Flammarion) and Ninu et la Mère des vents (Syros). 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, and Pocko People Agency, Veronique’s artwork has been included in the Totoro Forest Project, Gallery Nucleus, Brownstones to Red dirt Project 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!
