SHOWCASING THE FINEST FANTASY ARTISTS
Elisabeth Alba Location: US Web: www.albaillustration.com Email: firstname.lastname@example.org media: Watercolour, pencil
Elisabeth travelled often with her family as a child, and developed a fondness for history and an appreciation of different cultures. Add to this a love of film, literature and all things Disney, and you have the key inspirations behind the artist’s work.
One of our 2012 Rising Stars competition winners, Elisabeth has gone on to illustrate a string of children’s books for esteemed publishers such as Henry Holt, Scholastic, and Simon & Schuster. October will see the artist up sticks and leave New York, moving to a new home in western Massachusetts.
ImagineFX crit “What I like about Elisabeth’s art is how she manages, even in her client work, to put her own stamp on things. Her choices of colour and lighting tie her art together in a very subtle but satisfying way. “Gary Evans, Staff Writer
