Featured guest: Anna Jacobina Jacobsen, illustrator

We were delighted to host Anna Jacobina Jacobsen from Denmark for the month of September, 2022. She came to work on ideas for a new picture book. She wrote about her time at Wassard Elea: I spent September in the “Philosopher” working on my next book. The view from my balcony, the climate and quiet village life did wonders for my work process and my discipline. I quickly got into a daily routine. I worked, walked down the mountain, swam in the beautiful sea, walked up again and continued my work. By the end of the month my book was almost done.

Jacobina kindly sent us these photos from her residency time, with a preview of the new work. We are really looking forward to seeing her new book!
