Object of the week: Picture Books by Miranda Sofroniou
Inspired by the BBC series Frozen Planet Miranda Sofroniou brings these fun, factual and colourful picture books alive. Two beautiful books available that delve into the world of the Ocean and the Arctic..
These two factual picture books are for children aged 3 - 5. Research included interviewing children to find out what they thought about the Arctic and responding to make the books educational as well as fun.
Having started out as a fine art painter, Miranda Sofroniou decided to study illustration and has not looked back since, creating a wonderful series of books and drawings.
“I specialise in mixed media to create lively, colourful and playful illustrations. I primarily work within the field of children’s picture books, creating this a factual, entertaining and image based series. Drawing is at the heart of my practice and I often develop my work from drawings done while travelling and observing all aspects of life.”
Miranda’s work was picked out as a favourite of Chelsea Fine art Alumna and co-founder of Tatty Devine, Harriet Vine during our selection panel. Mother of a four year old Harriet knows how hard it is to find tasteful and well designed children’s items. We are working with Miranda on expanding the collection, look out for details.
