Some more sad news. This time about the well-loved illustrator and artist Pamela Lofts who died on July 4th, 2012.
Although I didn't know Pamela personally, I was a great admirer of her fine illustrations in many children's books over the years.
She will be remembered for her wonderful work in Wombat Stew written by Marcia Vaughan. Also the delightful drawings in Snug as a Hug, also written by Marcia.
Other books, illustrated by Pamela, include Mem Fox's Koala Lou and Hunwick's Egg brought vividly to life by Pamela's gorgeous illustrations.
Pamela Lofts will be deeply missed by the art and illustration world.
