Description

Kolibri Festival´s guest of honour 2021 is Chilean author and illustrator Paloma Valdivia (1978).

Paloma illustrates books and songs, writes, designs, and she likes bicycle rides, although her principal work is the creation of picture books for children. Her work as an author has been translated into over 15 languages.

Among other acknowledgements, she has received the International Prize BIB PLAQUE of the XVIII Biennial of Illustrations Bratislava (Slovakia); Most Beautiful Book of 2014 by the German Commission of UNESCO; the Santiago Municipal Literature Prize (Chile) as well as the Little Bird Award (USA) and the Medalla Colibrí (Hummingbird Medal) IBBY Chile, just to name a few.

In her own words: “Drawing and storytelling fascinate me, but what I truly find the most enchanting is childhood, both the one children are living today and our own, long-past one…”.
