CLA Amelia Frances Howard-Gibbon Illustrator's Award 2003, Winner

Winner of the Amelia Frances Howard-Gibbon Illustrator's Award

Emily Carr (1871-1945) was a great artist of the Northwest Coast. One of the few woman painters of her generation, she has been exhibited with and compared to Georgia O'Keeffe and Frida Kahlo, two other women artists whose work is finally receiving the recognition it deserves.

The Art Room is set in the early 1900s, when Carr was teaching art to children to support herself. Susan Vande Griek has created a delightful story-poem filled with Carr's love of animals, her insistence on painting from life and nature, and the sense of fun and freedom that she inspired in her students. Pascal Milelli has brilliantly accomplished the very difficult job of painting a book about a painter. His rich, painterly style is a perfect foil for the work that Carr was doing at the time.

Susan Vande Griek is the author of several children’s books, including the acclaimed middle-grade novel A Gift for Ampato and a picture-book biography of Emily Carr, The Art Room, illustrated by Pascal Milelli, which won the Amelia Frances Howard-Gibbon Illustrator’s Award. She has also written Go Home Bay, illustrated by Pascal Milelli, which was named a CCBC Best Books for Children and Teens.

Pascal Milelli graduated from the Alberta College of Art and Design in 1988. His book The Art Room, written by Susan Vande Griek, won the Amelia Frances Howard-Gibbon Award for Illustration in 2002.
