The line-up

Elena Arevalo Melville – Author, Illustrator & Artist

Elena Arevalo Melville writes with words, pictures, and a little bit of clay. Play and experimentation are integral to her creative process.  Umbrella’s award winning author is drawn to themes of community and belonging, friendship and imagination, loss and redemption.  Her main aesthetic obsessions are colour, emotion and mark making.
