I am “Madame” or “Madame Moustache”, but originally it is “Madame”. I’m a “collagist, a bill-poster” I work mostly collage, I add a few color drawings, but very little.

I was an actress for 8 years after that, I left everything, I traveled, and when I came back, as I was a bad actress (laughs), I looked for other ways to express myself. >> continue reading
