Séverine Lefebvre

Séverine Lefebvre

Séverine Lefebvre has seen it all. She was born in Reims, France, in 1977, and decided at age 16 to travel the world.

For the next two years, from Israel to Scotland to the West Indies, these exotic and initiatory travels opened the eyes and expanded the imagination of this young illustrator-in-the-making.

Her time in a Reims workshop made up her mind once and for all. Although her entry into the comics world through Delcourt Publishing was with Sillage, of which she created eight pages, it wasn't until 2007 that Lefebvre really proved herself with her very own project: Les aventures de Tom Sawyer (The Adventures of Tom Sawyer) and then, naturally, Huckleberry Finn, which she published with Delcourt in collaboration with Jean-David Morvan and Frédérique Voulyzé.

Needless to say, she knows what it's like to work with big titles! Nonetheless, she couldn't help but be a little apprehensive about working on a title such as Diary of a Femen, published with Le Lombard (Europe Comics in English). This is undoubtedly the secret to her striking just the right tone in her work on these women.
