We are delighted to bring you our fifth and final summer activity sheet. This project has been created by Laura Merz, a Finnish illustrator currently living and working in Berlin. Laura specialises in wildlife-themed works, children’s book illustration and public art projects. Laura has illustrated two award-winning children’s books: 1001 Creatures and Among Fascinating Creatures, both written by Aino Järvinen and published in Finland by Etana Editions. An English edition of 1001 Creatures will be available in September, by Restless Books.
Laura describes her artistic process as experimental and playful, “I view my art practice as an endless quest for more spontaneous, intuitive fun and dynamic ways to draw.” Her activity sheet gives an insight into this process encouraging you to experiment and play with paint, ink and mark making to create your own fantastic creatures.
