When choosing our next featured artist, I was strangely attracted to Belli Uccelli’s fabulous illustrations. Why strangely? Well, you see, I am fiercely afraid of the feathered species and the darling Emelia draws – you guessed it – BIRDS! So cudos to today’s featured artist for helping me conquer my fears (on paper, at least)!
I’m Emelia and I have been completely enthralled with birds and nature for as long as I can remember. I put a lot of thought and love into each bird that I create, drawing each one by hand and giving them their own personality and character. I get extremely excited when I see a bird fly by (everyone makes fun of me!) and a million ideas for new illustrations flash through my head, leading to a drawer full of bird doodles! I was inspired by my Baba (grandmother), who was a book illustrator and water color painter to pursue my passion and after working as a glass blower for ten years I finally did! Other than illustrating and enjoying nature I am an avid photographer, old cemetery enthusiast, treasure hunter, maker of lists and lover of chocolate!
