Marielle Durand

Paris, France

Marielle Durand has many different hats: she is an illustrator, a graphic designer and an art teacher, but the one she enjoys wearing the best is travel diary artist. Marielle spends her time on the road, traveling the world and stopping to sketch its landscapes, cities, and people with her fluid strokes. Marielle loves the spontaneity of this line of work, the freedom of sketching the mundane lives of people wherever she is in the world, or the dramatically epic Manhattan skyline. Her gorgeous watercolor and India ink creations reveal the uniqueness of a moment and in the same stroke connect the spectator to a shared human experience.
