New Artist: Nandi L. Fernandez
23 May 2023
Growing up Nandi didn't see many illustrated characters that looked like her, especially in picture books. She now strives to focus on illustrating characters of colour and representing marginalised groups in ethereal, vibrant and magnificent lights.
She is passionate about sharing African history through illustration and contributing to change. She believes that owning our narrative is the springboard to the future that we desire. Her portfolio pays tribute to the women of African decent, fighting daily battles of the social injustice of sexism, racism and colourism.
Her hope is that each of her illustrations brings a smile to women of African descent as a validation of both our inner and outer beauty.
