Nicoletta Ceccoli "Babes in Toyland" in gallery 3
Nicoletta Ceccoli's "Babes in Toyland" takes the viewer to a land where classic fairy tales meet 16th Century Flemish paintings, a place where Snow White and Alice in Wonderland-like doll-girls and their toys live amongst a magical forest of lollipops and candy.
Ceccoli's lifetime love and passion for children's picture books came full circle when her first works were published in 1997. Since then, Ciccoli has earned numerous awards including the Andersen prize Baia Delle Favole. and in 2006, a Silver Medal from the Society of Illustrators in New York. Ceccoli currently lives and works as a full-time book illustrator in the republic of San Marino, Italy.
