About the Illustrator

Nassima Amir grew up on the small island of New Caledonia. She has harbored a love for all things fantasy and sci-fi for as long as she can remember, which prompted her to move to France where she achieved her degree in applied arts at the Ecole Emile Cohl. She has since never stopped travelling, moving between continents to find that perfect inspiration for her paintings. You might catch Nassima wandering in nature, her head in the clouds and her nose pointed at the trees, seeking that special branch or leaf to capture. Or you could find her more often in her cozy apartment, enjoying a cup of green tea while working on her paintings or playing a game of Go.
