Presenting the very sumptuous work of Amélie Fléchais. A French children’s book illustrator and visual development artist. Graduated in 2011, Ms Fléchais earned a diploma in 2D animation from ESAAT (Ecole Supérieure Arts Appliqués et Textile). That same year she interned at Cartoon Saloon, an Irish animation studio responsible for the Oscar-nominated The Secret of Kells. There she produced concept art for the feature film Song of the Sea. A couple years later, Ms Fléchais was asked back to do further visual development and background art for Song of the Sea. More recently Ms Fléchais has shared her talents with Dreamworks and Hornet animation studios.
Additionally, since graduating, Amélie Fléchais has worked on three books, Chemin Perdu (Lost path), Le Petit Loup Rouge (Little Red Wolf) and soon to be released L’homme Montagne (Mountain Man). Both Chemin Perdu and Le Petit Loup Rouge are a feast for the eyes. Each page is carefully created. The illustrations are intricate, textured and rich in colour. Ms Fléchais has an incredible talent for the whimsical and joyous, and her talents really shine through in these books.
