Genevieve an illustrator & nomadic addict who can't stay in one place for more than six weeks. She’s drawn since she could remember, often recording her favorite cartoons on VHS tape, and studying each illustration frame by frame. This, in all likelihood, made her the worst 5-year-old with whom to watch cartoons.

In 2009 she started her own business, Le Petit Elefant, so she could do what she loves: get lost in the world and express it through art. Genevieve’s wandered all over the world, collecting stories & various materials to use for her art. The art that you see and she produces is an ongoing culmination and mixing of personal experiences, relationships, travels, and a truly deep love for ice cream.
