Fanny Dreyer grew up in Switzerland, not too far from the mountains, near the forest. She moved to Brussels after graduating from high school to study illustration.
Her pictures oscillate between realism and naïve art. They feature a wide palette of techniques, ranging from felt-tip to pencil, from the use of acrylic to inks that bleed into each other and, sometimes, risograph printing. Not one to limit herself to a single graphic style, she offers a multi-faceted universe that sees landscapes, folklore, and children take on a singular importance.
She currently lives and works in Brussels, splitting her time between children’s books, illustrations for the press and cultural sector, children’s workshops, school activities, as well as illustrating for the collective Cuistax, which she co-founded.
