After studying the fine arts in Montpellier, Emilie Plateau moved to Brussels, where she started her career as a comics author and illustrator, at first creating personal fanzines and later working for publishing houses like 6 Pieds Sous Terre (Comme un plateau, 2012, and De l'autre côté à Montréal, 2014) and Misma (Moi non plus, 2015). In 2019 she has continued her breakthrough, publishing with Dargaud a graphic novel adaptation of Tania de Montaigne’s book Noire, la vie méconnue de Claudette Colvin (Colored: The Unsung Life of Claudette Colvin, Europe Comics). She also publishes children’s books and works for the press, and participates in many comics collectives.
Noire, la vie méconnue de Claudette Colvin got a nomination at the 2020 Eisner Award for Best Digital Comic, with another nomination to Emilie Plateau for Best Lettering.
