Simone Lia I

Last month I attended a conference 'Beyond Picture Books' at CSA that I didn't really expect to enjoy or even stay to the end of as I had to drive home to Scotland that day. However, I found myself gripped and stayed to the very end, driving all through the night to get home. One of the speakers was Simone Lia and I love her! she was enigmatic, quirky and very, very funny and all of these great qualities travel through her hand and into her work.
The images above are from Simone's 'NEW' book 'They Didn't Teach this at Worm School' of course it's a winner for me as it has two of my favourite things, 'birds' and 'worms'. I bought it at The Fruitmarket Gallery last week and I think you should treat yourselves to.
