Born in Ermont, Charlie Kiéfer attended the School of Applied Arts from 1953 to 1955. At the same time, he worked at the atelier of Lucien Nortier, whom he assisted on series like 'Bison Noir', 'La Fleche Brisee', 'Sam Billie Bill' and 'Robin Des Bois' until 1968. From 1970, he focused on advertising work and in 1994, he began his own studio with his wife. He returned to comics with the historical comic 'Thorios - le Sage de l'Oronte' at Éditions du Triomphe in 1998 (script by Christian Deschamps). This was followed by 'Lille, Cité de la Vierge' (Faver, 1998), 'Avec Guy de Larigaudie' (Du Triomphe, 1999), 'Sainte Thérèse de Lisieux' (Clovis, 2000) and 'Saint Padre Pio' (Clovis, 2003).
