She is the author and illustrator of around forty children’s books, including the series Poka & MinePetites histoires de nuitMoi et rien and more recently Je veux un chien (et peu importe lequel), all published by Pastel/l’école des loisirs.
Her unique yet serious universe is filled with mystery and fantasy.
In Stockholm in 2010, she received the prestigious Astrid Lindgren Award for children’s literature for the body of her work.
As part of the MagmaContemporary Art Triennial inOttignies–Louvain-la-Neuve, this daring artist has recently exhibited a series of a hundred faces for the facewallinstallation and, in collaboration with Vincent Glowinski (Bonom), the A quatre piedsinstallation, comprising 9 huge drawings exhibited in an underground carpark that combine dance and charcoal.
As Kitty enjoys working with coloured pencils, this is the medium she has proposed for the Anima poster.
