My finished piece for Girls: Fact & Fiction, a gallery show that opens at Light Grey Art Lab this week!
The first time I encountered this story was in third grade. Our school librarian, Mrs. Lamb, would choose a chapter book to read to our class on Tuesdays. She had a way of reading and choosing that made every single book she read really special, and I remember a lot of them. Matilda was probably my favorite though, and I've been a Roald Dahl fan ever since.
My mom told me last month that my little cousin Sarah loves the movie (I do too; it's left a pretty clear mark on this visual interpretation of Matilda).
