gaaward2005 Governors Arts Awards

Individual Arts Patron Award
Created by Beth Krommes, Peterborough

Author/Illustrator Beth Krommes is the illustrator of Phyllis Root’s Grandmother Winter and Lise Lunge-Larsen’s The Hidden Folk. Beth creates her unique and beautiful artwork by first carving images into a large piece of linoleum, then dipping the carvings in black ink, photocopying these pieces and finally filling in the photocopies with watercolour. This complicated process yields a stunning visual framework. Krommes received a 2002 Golden Kite Award for Illustration for her work on The Lamp, the Ice, and the Boat Called Fish: Based on a True Story by Jacqueline Briggs Martin.
