Besides working as a freelance illustrator, Anne-Laure is working on various projects, which include clothing brand Sunflower Snowqueen as well as her own art.
Her personal work is sensitive and gravitates around recurrent themes such as mental health, memories, grief, insecurities and personal struggles. Music, words and sounds are a massive source of inspiration to Anne-Laure - her own music practice started very early on and granted her with perfect pitch and synesthesia, creating a back and forth discussion between sounds and visuals.
She started experimenting with denim and paint following her first self-organised exhibition in 2019 with partner and musician/artist Maurice O'Connor. The hand-painted vintage jackets caught the eyes of many and led the couple to co-found eco-friendly clothing brand Sunflower Snowqueen in 2020.
Sunflower Snowqueen sold out their first event in October 2021, which featured musicians Sample Answer, Josh McClorey and Royal Male.
