Having grown up in the Quebec countryside, the appeal of big cities came early for Geneviève Godbout. Armed with her multicoloured pencils, she leaves aged 16 to study traditional animation at the Cégep du Vieux Montréal. Three years later, she continues her training at Gobelins in Paris.
Fallen under the charm of old Europe, she then lived in London for seven years working as a character artist for the Walt Disney Company. Thanks to her favorite mediums, soft pastels and colour pencils, the illustrator, now Montrealer, saw her career flourish the past few years. Her pencils strokes are instantly recognizable and her various publishers include Tundra Books, Random House, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Harper Collins, Comme des Géants and La Pastèque.
Geneviève’s work was selected for the Societety of Illustrators Original Exhibit in 2017, 2018 and 2019 for her books “Johnny Appleseed”, “Goodnight, Anne “ and “Apple Cake”. She now works on the sequel of her first book as an author “What’s Up, Maloo?” and a series of children’s books based on Lucy Maud Montgomery’s classic Anne of Green Gables.
Some artwork may be paid for in installments. Please for details.
