Marina le Ray Born in Britanny (France),I grew up in the countryside but I really love living in the city. I live and work in Nantes. I have been drawing since I can hold a pen, and never stop drawing and painting ever since. It's only after my studies in biology and landscape architecture that I finally decided to make a living out of my hobby! If I have been using tempera for my recent artworks, I also use acrylics and watercolour for my sketch books. I love sketching, especially when I travel or I visit new places. I am a real radio and music addict when I work If I wasn't an illustrator? I would love to be a chef, not just any kind though: a pasta chef!
