Patati&Patata evokes in french speaking an inexhaustible chatter or a series of words that can not be guessed. It's probably what describes the most Marjolaine's small world.


Born in 1990 in Lausanne, Marjolaine studied multimedia design at ERACOM in Lausanne (Switzerland) from 2009 to 2012, and then learnt animation all by herself, through internships. In 2013, she has been admitted at the school La Poudrière in Valence, France. 

She is actually working at Nadasdy film’s as an animation film director.
In 2017, she founded the Animation Film Festival of Savigny, first animation festival of the canton of Vaud (Switzerland).

Sometimes she participates in DIY Markets under the name of PATATI&PATATA, or BABA YIAGA. But someone stole her website name and now if you write you will just find an online casino.
