On July 1, 2014

As a work experience student Sophie Norsa's exceptional artistic talents were quickly discovered by New Frontier Publishing. She was shortlisted for the Children's Book Council of Australia Crichton Award for her illustrations in Yellow Dress Day. Following this she illustrated Matilda Saves Santa Claus which was released in November 2013. Lisa Absolutely Loves Art is released today and is the first book Sophie has written as well as illustrated.

As an art student, Sophie was motivated by her love of art. Keen to pay homage to the art world in a picture book the famous paintings featured in Lisa Absolutely Loves Art are some of Sophie’s favourites.
