With a degree in Painting from the Lisbon School of Fine-Arts, Teresa Lima started to focus on illustrating children’s books in 1994. She quickly made a name for herself, and with her recreation of Alice no País das Maravilhas [Alice in Wonderland] she won the 3rd edition of the National Illustration Prize (1998). The imaginary world of Lewis Carroll and other fantasy texts are ideal for the delicacy of her artistic touch, which has been honed through a technique that mixes painting, drawing and collage. In 2006, she again won the National Illustration Prize, this time with another classic; Rudyard Kipling’s Histórias de Animais [Just so Stories]. With this work she was chosen to participate in the 2007 international illustrators’ exhibition at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair, where in 2008 her work was shown again, in the exhibition Ilustrações.pt. She currently combines illustration with teaching Visual Arts at the Escola Vergílio Ferreira in Lisbon.
