Updated: Jan 30



Tell us about yourself.


My name is Audrey Marzin, also known as @etvoilafactory. Originally from France, I also lived in Finland and Singapore. I now live in San Francisco, where I work as an illustrator and a brand designer.


What type of art do you feel most connected to?


I have no clear answer, but I will say Visual Arts and Cinema.


How long have you been drawing or illustrating?


Since I first held a pen! I studied Applied Arts in high school and then went to a design school. I used to draw objects as an Industrial Designer, and now I am an illustrator.


What inspires you the most to illustrate?


Being around nature. People inspire me a lot, as well.





Do you remember your first-ever illustration? What was it?


I can’t remember my first-ever illustration, but Instagram remembers the first one that I posted. I scrolled down to my archived illustrations from 2017, and it is an illustration of a smartphone in an isometric style that I did for a magazine in Singapore.




Describe your creative illustration process in several steps


  • I meet/call my client to understand the project.

  • I create mood boards to see if we are aligned with the style.

  • I sketch storytelling proposals on paper or my I-pad.

  • I refine proportions, lines, play with colors...

  • I vectorize on Illustrator.


Where do you see yourself in the future?


I have no idea, but I hope to keep meeting inspiring people worldwide and always improve my style wherever I will be.


What three things would you tell others to be inspired to make art during Covid-19?


Things that I try to apply to myself

  • Do not neglect your health; go for a walk or a run

  • Stay open to others because they are probably your biggest inspirational source.

  • Take some time to create without deadline pressure, just for fun.


Which tools do you use to illustrate? Which one do you use the most?


For my digital work, I use Procreate on my I-pad, illustrator, and Photoshop.

I also do screen printing, ceramics, and embroidery. But I definitely use my I-pad the most.


How can others find your work or connect with you?


You can find my work on Instagram @etvoilafactory and get in touch at contact@audreymarzin.com.


I hope to find some time to open my online boutique soon!
