Canadian illustrator Esthera “Estée'” Preda is kind enough to welcome us into an incredible world of her creation. Where rabbits have human faces, flowers grow out of the tops of heads, and rabbits are bipedal and ride around on skateboards.
As a child, she was read Hans Christian Andersen and Brothers Grimm fairy tales every night by her mother who escaped the iron curtain. She lived across the hall from her grand-mother who was prone to night terrors. Although, she had wonderful parents, one of her favorite pastimes was to pretend that she was an orphan so she could build, with her brothers and sister, multi-level cardboard houses in the summer and igloo villages in the winter. The world that her art exists in lies somewhere between those ephemeral seasons, night terrors and folk tales.
