Paola Hirou was trained in illustration at the Emile Cohl School in Lyon. There she acquired a basic knowledge of traditional drawing and experimented with a variety of techniques and mediums such as painting, sculpture and digital drawing.
Today she has developed a more graphic and refined way of drawing, using digital flat tints or gouache. She pays particular attention to colour, reducing her palette to a few shades.
Having grown up in the mountains, she later developed a passion for the ocean and began to represent it more and more in her illustrations. Nature is her main source of inspiration and she takes pleasure in retranscribing an atmosphere through the representation of landscapes.
During her first collaboration with David & David Studio she developed a collection of cheerful, graphic and colourful posters for children. In 2022, the "Bronzette" collection was born, celebrating the summer period, its aquatic activities and its gentle idleness.
