Clara Debray

Clara Debray is a young French author and illustrator. She grew up in a small village of Chartreuse in the Alps and moved to Paris for her studies. After graduating in textile design in 2016 at the Duperré school, she joined the Paris School of Decorative Arts from which she graduated in 2020.

The sense of belonging to the environment in which she grew up has never left her. She now lives in Annecy and devotes much of her illustration work to conveying her personal feeling for the mountains. She likes to draw landscapes and faces that tell stories.

Colours are important to Clara, and traditional tools such as oil paint and pastels allow her to express herself fully.
