The Artist: Céline Chapus

Fantasy & romance art, with an emphasis on cute and sexy

A Fairy Tale

Rumor has it Céline was hatched on a rooftop in old Paris one cold January morning.

She was then delivered to a dashing French gentleman and a beautiful Vietnamese lady, and that parentage pretty much guaranteed she’d be a dreamer and a romantic for the rest of her days.

Always an Artist

Céline has been drawing for as long as she can remember, finding inspiration in just about anything, from manga to sculptures in the Musée du Louvre.

She’s also terribly fond of bookstores, fine Swiss chocolate, and all things purple, including but not limited to Victorian men’s headgear.

Mission Statement

“It is my goal to create engaging and approachable character based fantasy art, drawing inspiration from mythology, fairy tales, comics, manga, and other artists whose work allowed me to dream in the first place. As an artist, I aim to explore relationships (with others and within oneself) through the lens of sensuality and emotion. As a human being, I hope that my vision of the world brings you strength, joy, comfort and a measure of playfulness.”
