Houdart  lives and works in Paris. As an author and an illustrator, she develops a colourful, graphic universe livening up the inanimate, crossing the animal and human being, the supernatural and the monstrous. In her works, Houdart composes narrative representations where the characters are provided with symbolic attributes, which translate their identity as their emotional state.

The exhibition runs until February 6, 2016

Since 1996, Houdart has written, illustrated and published more than 20 books in different languages, mainly albums for children. She has also produced illustrations popularly received by grown-ups and youth, and led numerous successful workshops and exhibitions across Europe.
