Liz Anelli spent her early years drawing on the electrical circuit diagram papers that her dad brought home from work, copying her mother’s loopy handwriting and getting told off for daydreaming. Today she makes pictures using collage and printmaking as well as paint, pencils and her computer. Her picture books explore the world in vivid detail and she is very fond of designing complicated cityscape scenes as well as creating big illustrated maps of the places she loves best.
