Kaleidoscope: Olivia Golden’s Creature Crashes & Animal Mash Ups

Olivia was illustrator on a book called “Woggleburn Creek”, where the creatures are all mash ups of existing creatures, to create new creatures with new names and abilities!  Using this book as her starting point, students are invited to challenge Olivia to create new creatures, before embarking on their own fabulous creations! New creatures= new name = new (super) powers and plenty of giggles! So for example a Hedgehog/frog becomes a Hedgefrog having the main features of both!

Olivia Golden is a Mayo born illustrator who now lives in Cork city with her young family. She has illustrated over 30 books for children of all ages from toddlers to teens along with a variety of covers and books for adults. Her work has exhibited nationally and internationally as near as IMMA, Dublin and as far away as Palais Auersperg, Vienna. She has been shortlisted for the Gradham Reich Carlo book of the year and to represent Ireland at the Bratislava Biennial and Pictuir, which showcased the best of Irish illustration. Fun, texture and contrast combined with simple compositions constitute the heart of Olivia’s visual style.
