Line Gamache started out working in the field of visual arts. She turned to comics in 1996, because she wanted to express the risks of life as an artist and the disappointment of refusals she had received. This resulted in the album 'Peut-être à la Saint-Glinglin', her first autobiographical work. Her next work was 'Délire sur Aylwin', devoted to the district she just moved in. With 'Té Malade, toi!', she described 40 years of her family's history, dealing with the handicap of her younger sister.
