Hello! My name is Ava. I am a graphic designer and illustrator from Sydney, Australia. People often ask me how I came to be in France and how the universe of Chloe & Claude started. So in brief, here's the story!
I met my now-husband at the airport on my way home from a European holiday. Four years almost to that day, we were married and decided to settle in his hometown of Bordeaux. When I first arrived in France I spent my time learning french (as a side note - please bear with me while I work on translating this site to french, I promise it's coming soon!), drawing and creating french themed decor for my friend's children back home. I had so much fun doing so, that I decided to spread the love further, and voila, in 2016 Chloe & Claude was born!
My work is mostly influenced by the retro design period. The bold black lines and muted colours from the 1950s are reflected in my designs through one of my favourite printing techniques; screen printing. I have a deep love of animals, particularly cats, and it brings me great joy to feature them in my creations.
