My new obsession: artist Lisa Cinar of “Draw Me A Lion”

I had the pleasure of finally meeting Lisa Cinar at her Draw Me A Lion booth at the Strathcona Winter Craft Fair yesterday.  What a beautiful person!

Lisa Cinar is an illustrator, writer and overall enthusiast of picture books and all things related. She grew up in Germany, then moved to Boston Massachusetts, and then to Vancouver BC where she attended the Emily Carr University of Art & Design.  She has written and illustrated two Picture books: ‘The Day it all blew Away’ which was nominated for the Christie Harris Illustrated Children’s Literature Prize in 2008, and ‘Paulina P. for Petersen’.

I am a huge fan of Lisa’s work.  Her art brings up such immensely pleasurable memories of my childhood in Sweden, artist Lisa Larson and my favorite children’s books.  I was lucky to purchase a sampling of goodies.  I am tempted to color them, yet also want to just leave them untouched!  But no, I plan to color the masks and the cards as her pieces simply invite interaction!
