Little People, BIG DREAMS: Goergia O'Keeffe
Written by: Maria Isabel Sanchez Vegara
Illustrated by: Erica Salcedo
Meet Georgia O'Keeffe, one of America's greatest artists, a talented painter who broke boundaries.
As a child, little Georgia viewed the world differently from other people. She roamed outdoors with her sketch book, while other girls played. As an adult, she painted all day. From New York City to New Mexico, she was influenced by the landscapes of her environment. This moving book features stylish and quirky illustrations and extra facts at the back, including a biographical timeline with historical photos and a detailed profile of the artist's life.
Maria Isabel Sánchez Vegara is the author and creator of the inspirational best-selling series Little People, BIG DREAMS. Growing up in the ’70s in Barcelona, her heroines were Pippi Longstocking, Momo and Tinkerbell, and she felt great admiration for the Spanish poet Gloria Fuertes. She dreamed of becoming a poet just like her one day. It took Maria Isabel almost 40 years and most of her savings to make her dream come true. In 2012, after 20 years of working in advertising, she self-published her first book. Two years later, she released what was meant to be a birth present for her twin nieces, Alba and Claudia: the very first title in the Little People, BIG DREAMS series.
Erica Salcedo is an illustrator based in Cuenca, Spain. She studied Fine Art at Castilla-La Mancha University, before earning a master's degree in graphic design and illustration from the University of Valencia.
