Jessica Secheret was born on a spring day in 1978 in a small French town. When she was very young she had strange buddies that were never leaving her pockets: felt pens, colored pencils, brushes and paint. After repainting all the walls in the house, her parents understood that it was time for her to express her "talent" at an art school. That's how she arrived at the famous École Boulle in Paris where she learned furniture design. Following several years spent in various agencies of architecture, she decided to give up squares, rulers, and compasses and put her body, heart, and soul into what she always loved – putting her own imagination on paper. She's currently living in Paris with her daughter, drawing for magazines and children's books in France and abroad.
