Sandrine Revel was born in 1969 in Bordeaux, a city she has never left.
After studying Fine Arts, she began her career as an illustrator and painter, publishing her first album in 1996.
She is just as well-known for her children's books (including her award-winning Un drôle d'ange gardien in 2001) and for her reportages ("The 11th Day," "Revivals") as she is for her work in the field of comics.
In the space of 13 years, she has created 17 albums and has worked extensively with various newspapers (such as Sud Ouest Dimanche) and publishing houses (including Disney Hachette, Milan Presse, Dupuis, and Dargaud).
Recent publications include Le voyage de June (with Sophie Kovess-Brun), Je suis Top ! (with Blandine Métayer and Véronique Grisseaux), Glenn Gould, une vie à contretemps (Dargaud; Glenn Gould: A Life Off Tempo, NBM 2016), for which she is both writer and artist, and N'embrassez pas qui vous voulez (Dupuis; You Can't Just Kiss Anyone You Want, Europe Comics 2017).
When not making comics, Revel divides her time between painting and playing the piano, and has published notebooks of sketches made during classical and jazz concerts.
