The Marvelous Collection of Alvin Guilbert

ARTIST: Manelle Oliphant, USA

ARTIST STATEMENT: I started this project for MerMay 2020. (MerMay is a monthlong celebration about artwork about mermaids). It’s a story about letting go and having faith and there are mermaids in it. This is the book cover and I used ink and watercolor to create it.

MEDIA: Ink, Watercolors

SURFACE: Beta Series- Extra Heavyweight – 270 gsm – White – Cold Press Surface

ABOUT THE ARTIST: Manelle’s love of stories began with the books and movies she enjoyed as a child. It was a happy day when her mom finally let her get her own library card. She spent much of her time checking out books of beautifully illustrated fairy tales.

Since then, she has received a Bachelor’s Degree in Illustration from BYU-Idaho and has illustrated many children’s books. You can read her stories, artwork, and follow current projects on talesfantastic.com and on Instagram and Facebook @talesfantastic

Manelle lives in Salt Lake City with her husband and two cats.
