Thierry Lafontaine was found under a tree in Brazil when he was a baby. He grew up in Montreal, Canada, and currently lives in Toronto.
He played football for eight years; worked as a wine consultant for a decade; and studied science and film before discovering that he'd been an artist all along.
Thierry has taught life drawing and digital painting at Sheridan College, and creates concept art and children\'s book illustrations as a senior artist at Imaginism Studios. He also mentors artists from around the world as the principal instructor at Imaginism Studios' 30-day In-House Workshop.
Thierry recently created the cover art for HarperCollins' September book release, The Peculiar by Stefan Bachmann.
His mission as an artist is to share how he sees the world.
