ARTIST PORTRAIT

Madame Dessine

Who am I?

I am Magalie, alias Madame Dessine, an illustrator artist based in Paris since 2015. Passionate about the world of art and crafts since always, I first studied business before working for a few years in the luxury industry. In 2020, I decided to dedicate myself completely to my passion: illustration and painting.

My encounter with art

In the books! Our library was well stocked with books on art and painting. As a child, I put my nose into it to discover, inspire myself and draw in my turn. Then, during our visits to Paris, my grandmother took us to the museum. These visits were very stimulating and inspiring for the rest of my journey.

A project close to my heart

Writing: I am working on an illustrated book project on a theme that is close to my heart. But I’ll keep it a secret for now!
