Adorably charming, the work of Klara Persson is something that could easily be found in a quirky children's book. This is especially the case since her illustrations tend to revolve around loving relationships and interactions with nature. Sweet and innocent, Klara Persson sends a beautiful message through her artworks.

Hailing from Gothenburg, Sweden, Klara Persson focuses on soft colors that have an almost water color-like aesthetic on paper. Paired with oddly shaped humans, minimalist landscapes and whimsical touches such as best friends with attached pigtail braids, Klara Persson's illustrations are as entertaining as they are heartwarming. The recent recipient of two awards this year, Slangbellan and Snöbollen, her work will be exhibited at the Children's Book Fair in Bologna.
