About & Contact

Freelance illustrator

Digital illustrations, starting points for poetic stories inspired by the beauty of the natural world.

Bonjour! I’m French and I’m currently based in Grenoble, France.

I’m available for commissions. Feel free to contact me at info@marine-coutroutsios.com  for any enquiry. For updates follow me on Instagram or Facebook.

I enjoy working digitally however my background in paper engineering has informed a lot the way I build my illustrations and the soft texture I like to give them.

I have been freelancing from 2012 to 2017, in Sydney Australia, as a paper engineer for brands, ad agencies, councils and my work has been exhibited and published in a few books on paper art. In 2018, I needed to re-invent myself after some difficult times and I entirely switched to digital illustration. That year, I attended an illustration master class by renowned SooJin and Chris Buzelli, which lead me to my first published editorial illustration.

Feel free to have a look at a selection of projects clicking on my CV down below.

My work-story in the shape of my favourite multi-coloured pencil, growing up in the 80’s!
Each experience has taught me a lot and I have developed an unique career path, leading to the illustrations I make today.
