Our very own ‘Beatriz Potter’! We’re #ARUproud of our Children’s Book Illustration MA student, Beatriz Lostalé Seijo, for winning first prize in the national ‘Beatrix Potter Reimagined Competition’. The competition, held to mark the 150th anniversary of the birth of the famous children’s author, called on art students to reinterpret or reimagine Beatrix Potter’s books or characters and Beatriz impressed the judges with her digital piece titled ‘Fooled’ based on The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck. Beatriz, who’s from Galicia in Spain and now lives in Cambridge, said: “My artwork ‘Fooled’ comes from The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck. I tried to capture the spirit of the story in a single piece of art and I’m so pleased the judges enjoyed it.” The 23-year-old’s work will be on display in Kendal Library, alongside the other competition entries, until Friday, 28 October. Congratulations Beatriz, we’re so proud of you!
