Lorena Carrington – Fairy Tales and Secret Gardens Literary Talk
Join photographic artist and illustrator Lorena Carrington as she takes you on a tour of her artworks via her books in the Garden Room at Buda, and also on a tour of the landscapes within them. From the backyards and bush of Castlemaine, to the gardens, forests and windswept shores of France and Ireland, hear how Lorena weaves the natural world into strange and fantastical fairy tale illustrations. Lorena Carrington is published in Australia with Serenity Press, and internationally with Kane Miller (US) and Wydawnictwo Tadam (Poland). Her books include the Long Lost Fairy Tales Collection with Kate Forsyth and French Fairy Tales with Sophie Masson. Lorena exhibits regularly in galleries including the Stephen McLaughlan Gallery in Melbourne, Grace Cossington Smith Gallery in Sydney and The Art Vault in Mildura. She presents at literary and arts festivals around Australia, and visits schools and libraries to give talks and hold workshops on illustration, books and story. She is the recipient of the 2020 Australian Fairy Tale Society award, for her “outstanding contribution to the field of Australian Fairy Tales.”
