Hello! I am Margaux Samson-Abadie
alias Nano Février, a French illustrator & pattern designer with a background in textiles and fashion design.
After working several years as a designer in childrenwear, I am now a freelancer always on the look for exciting projects — be it illustration for children books, magazines, or surface pattern design for fashion, interior decoration, stationery, you name it !
My work is rooted in nature, childhood memories, folklore, travels, literature, cinema & music. I like to tackle subjects such as ecology, slow living and mindfulness.
I would love to hear from you if you are interested in working together — or if you simply want to chat about art or cats...
Please reach out to me at for commissions and licensing or to my literary agent Katie Perrott at for any book projects.
