Nicoletta Ceccoli’s sweet creatures are fragile and frozen.
Tamers, mermaids, grave ladies of the house, insect-women, amazons with cloak and sword.
Ethereal and terrifying figures in a cheating merryland where the dawn light reveals the illusion. A world of surrealist echoes, where porcelain skinned dolls move, all but fragile and innocent.
Nicoletta Ceccoli has illustrated many books, mainly in Italy, in the USA and in the UK.
Her work has been exhibited at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair for seven times.
She has also shown her work in prestigious galleries like CoproNason (Los Angeles), Dorothy Circus (Rome), Magic Pony (Toronto), Richard Goodall Gallery (Manchester), Roq la Rue (Seattle).
In 2001, Nicoletta was awarded the Andersen prize as best italian illustrator of the year. She is also four-time winner of the award of excellence from Communication Arts. In 2006, she received the silver medal from the Society of Illustrators (New York).
