Behind the drawings is Linnea Bellamine, 24-year-old
Artist / Graphic Designer / Illustrator from Finland.

“Hello!
I have a passion for Digital Art and I’m always trying to develop my skills in it. I enjoy it when I’m able to tell a whole story through one work of art, visualizing emotions through colors and characters that are full of expressions and life. In the field of Graphic Design I especially enjoy working on package designs. Besides various areas of Graphic Design, I’m also interested in frame-by-frame animations, comics and Game Art.”

Recommendations from professionals

“Pictures are an important tool in my work as a mentor of children’s emotional skills. Pictures help children identify their feelings and discuss them. Above all, coloring the drawings gives children the opportunity to color their own story from their own perspective. Linnea has captured a variety of emotions in the animal pictures in a magical way: the animals are adorable, attractive and easy to relate to. The drawings can be used for so many purposes, which I think is brilliant. I look forward to seeing how the Library of Feelings inspires children to express their feelings and use their imagination. I hope to see the rest of the pictures soon!”

“Children need adult help to learn new skills, such as emotional skills. Observing and recognizing the different feelings a child has is very important – but can sometimes be difficult. I have been searching for good material to use in emotional skills education for a while. This book is exactly what I’ve been searching for. The book comes in handy in teaching because it appeals to children’s natural interest in animals, drawing, and painting, and because it can be used in so many different ways. This book inspires and motivates them to discuss their feelings more easily and openly. The pictures provide a gateway to discussing various emotions: “What are you afraid of? Why? Look at this hedgehog. It is frightened too. Why is it afraid?” After discussion the children can paint, color, or draw the picture. This is an amazing idea and I look forward to using this book with children in early childhood education.”
