Dorothée de Monfreid lives and works in Paris.
She graduated from the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs. She works with WORDS just as keenly as with IMAGES. She has written and/or illustrated over 60 books (published at l’école des loisirs, Misma, Le Seuil, Gallimard, Hélium, Casterman and Bayard), which have been widely translated. Her commitment to comics has led to her chairing the Youth Jury of the Angoulême Festival in 2020. Dorothée de Monfreid’s versatile stories and prolific drawings express a burlesque and unbridled imagination; she offers a characteristically joyful and sharp perspective on our daily lives.
