Hello and welcome to my website. I am Magali and, as you guessed, I am a visual enthusiast.

What’s with the rubik’s cube?

Along with my contemplative attitude, I really like to find out how things work. I have a bioengineering degree and worked as a software engineer for three years, so I am always eager to solve problems.

Why do illustration then?

In my personal life and professional experience, I came to realize the importance of communication and how delicate it can be.  I think that visuals are a great catalyst for conveying a message or idea, which  is why I want to help others connect to their audience by illustrating stories, music and poetry.

Why so many animals?

I find animals very soothing. Sketching animals usually makes me calmer and happier and I want to share that feeling. I hope that when you look at my sketches, you will feel better too.

And what about water?

Do you know this feeling you have when watching the dancing flames of a fire, it’s glow warming your face? It feels so good you could stare at it for days? Well, I feel that way about water.
I lived nearby the ocean my whole childhood. I was born in French Polynesia and grew up in the Caribbean as well as New-Caledonia. That made me a swimmer and an ocean lover.
Also, I believe that water represents a great painting challenge and I find challenges very appealing.
