Sara Fanelli




I was one of the lucky few to attend Sara Fanelli's talk at university on Wednesday last week. Her Pinocchio exhibition is now up at the university gallery and is absolutely beautiful! It's like stepping into a sweet shop only instead of sweets there are vintage oddities and art materials and a collection of her gorgeous children's books! If you don't know her work it's sometimes quite edgy but brings children's stories to life with her amazing use of collage and typography. I felt quite honoured to hear her talk as she's so enthusiastic and charming. Also to be studying only feet away from an exhibition is really inspirational, it makes me want to get going with my own work, not just do observational drawing. Oh well, only 4 more weeks of that to go...

Do you know the book 'Play Pen - new children's book illustration' by martin salisbury? very inspiring.

I think she did yes, she was so lovely and modest about her work although I've since seen she's selling allsorts of cards and books at the tate shop so must be doing really well...
