Join us in the library for a book signing party for artist Rosy Lamb’s exquisite first picture book, Paul Meets Bernadette, a tale of love and lunacy between two goldfish.
Paul is a fish who used to go around in circles. He made big circles and little circles. He circled from left to right and from right to left. He circled from top to bottom and from bottom to top. What else was there to do? Until one day Bernadette drops in and shows Paul that there is a whole world out there, right outside his bowl, with so many things to see. A banana-shaped boat! A blue elephant with a spoutlike trunk (be quiet when she’s feeding her babies)! A lovely lunetta butterfly, with tortoise-shell rims! Simple saturated paintings play off this charming ode to an active imagination – and the way that life changes when a bewitching creature opens your eyes.
Rosy Lamb was born on top of a remote hill overlooking mountains and surrounded by woods in the state of New Hampshire (USA). Her parents are artists who like to stay at home and draw and write, and so unwittingly encouraged their numerous children to do the same. Lamb works mostly as a painter and sculptor and has had her studio in Paris since 2001. In the winter of 2011, Rosy Lamb made a portrait of George and Sylvia Whitman that was exhibited in the BP portrait exhibit in London.
