Valentine Laffitte is a young French illustrator living in Brussels. She studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels. She regularly exhibits her work and holds workshops for children. Her work is typified by cut paper collages. She paints large sheets of paper, creating finely nuanced colours and then cuts them into different shapes and brings them together in a collage. Both her two-dimensional and three-dimensional works give a sense of depth and volume. In her book she cleverly brings together text and image.
