Who am I?

“…But…to sing,

to dream, to smile, to walk, to be alone, be free,

with a voice that stirs and an eye that still can see!

To cock your hat to one side, when you please

at a yes, a no, to fight, or- make poetry!

To work without a thought of fame or fortune,

on that journey, that you dream of, to the moon!”

Cyrano de Bergerac, Edmond Rostand (1897).

Hi !

I am Leslie, a graphic designer, illustrator and videographer living in Aberdeen, in bonnie Scotland.

Right after having graduated in 2016 from degrees focusing on image creation and curation, I founded my freelance business in Paris before moving to Aberdeenshire in 2020.
Why did I start my freelance activity?

Before I even graduated, I started carefully considering what I wanted to do as a job in my life. I came to the realization that the skills I developed, as well as my training and my aspirations, soon lead me to consider provoking my own chance and opportunities by creating my own job!

Project after project, I am so glad that I did!

I dedicate my work to offering every single professionals contacting me the same chance to develop a universe of their own and to order contents that are unique to them and their business. In other words: graphic design and videography services should be available to all so we should all have the opportunity to celebrate our uniqueness and share our passion!

Wee anecdotes about me

πŸŒ™ I love cats, I adopted my little black kitty Yuzu in 2020. He is my Joy, ranking in my heart right after my partner and love of my life, of course!

πŸŒ™ I am super empathetic. I am much moved when people start sharing personal experience, be they joyful or difficult to receive.
I am also often moved to the core by films, books, paintings, musics… I like to think about this character’s trait as a special gift since it makes my life so much more positively intense!

πŸŒ™ My favorite series of all time is, without hesitating, Adventure Time. No other animated shows have ever won my heart like this one did. In regards of my favorite book, I read the play Cyrano de Bergerac by Edmond Rostand about 6 times at least. And watched its TV adaptation like… 8 times? For me, it’s one of the best examples that we can paint images with words.

πŸŒ™ I fell in love with Scotland when I first visited the country at 15 years old. I had the chance to undertake my Master degree in Edinburgh before getting back to France where I felt increasingly homesick for a place I just knew I had to call my home for good. I finally acted upon my dreams and my partner and I moved to Aberdeen in 2020!

πŸŒ™ I dream to travel to Japan! I want to plan a trip from Scotland by travelling only by land or by sea. No plane! 🌱

β€œPeople get built different. We don’t need to figure it out, we just need to respect it.”
