Hélène Magisson started her artistic career as a painting restorer in Paris, where she was also trained in the art of medieval illumination. She has lived in countries all over the world, including Africa and India.
She loves to discover other cultures through their arts and customs as she believes that cultural diversity is always an enrichment.
She now calls Australia home, and it was when she settled in Australia with her family that Hélène began a new career illustrating children’s books.
Since then, she has illustrated several books including Slowly! Slowly! by T.M. Clark, a CBCA 2018 Notable Picture Book of the Year.
