Françoise Racine

Born in 1935, near Rue, in Marquenterre. Normal School in Amiens, between 1951 and 1955. French teacher in college for 25 years, in Poix-de-Picardie.
In 1980, she left Poix and her job to lead painting and art workshops in Amiens, for children and teenagers. Chantal Valentin, curator of the Departmental Library of the Somme, offers her to ensure the exhibitions of the Library, their designs, their achievements and their catalogs. She worked with great pleasure until 2007. Vertebral fractures forced her to reduce working life. It is then that she undertakes writing and illustration work on mythological themes that have been dear to her heart for a long time.
