Describe your creative lab quickly?  

My creative lab is filled with objects that I love and that inspire me. There is always a candle somewhere, a comforting plant, an old engravings or plates of illustrations found in every corner. On the other hand, my workspace is usually uncluttered to focus on my white sheets and my creative process.

In two sentences, how would you describe your work technique?
Handmade and instinctive. With an accumulation of lines and patterns that reflect the reality but also areas of calm and relaxation.

What is the project you are most proud of?
Each project is like a baby for me, but I particularly enjoyed working on the mural for Restaurant HÀ in Old Montreal.

What are your favorite colors to create?
The shades of pink and blue, as well as black.

Why did you become an artist?
This is the best way for me to escape from everyday life and create worlds that are easy on the eyes and beautiful for the heart.

In four words, how would you describe your style of illustration?
Feminine and detailed with a touch of casualness, most of the time dreamy.

What is your dream project?
A mural of giant flowers.

What does a typical day look like in Aurore Danielou’s life?
My morning coffee is the motor of my day, I like the energy of the morning to work.
It usually is composed in two parts, the first is more research and inspirations, where
I inform myself about the news in the art, architecture and fashion industries. The second is the illustration creation. Every day, I create at least one illustration of the moment or a pattern for my wallpapers. In the afternoon, I work on my creative projects with a break where I go for a walk or cycling. The connection to green spaces and the outdoors inspires me and helps me a lot in my work.

What inspires you?
Nature and femininity
