Lennart Helje is a painter and illustrator who born in 1940 in Lima, Sweden. He paints Christmas Elves and animals in snowy landscapes. So, he is a fairy-tale Artist. Several of his paintings are reproduced as Christmas cards, both in Sweden and internationally, by UNICEF. He has also illustrated stamps and postal Christmas seals, with Nordic nature and plant motifs.
Usually, his droll, red-capped gnomes enjoy taking leisurely hikes through the countryside and making new woodland friends along the way. As you enjoy his paintings full of their soft tones, it’s very possible to feel the calm they exude.
Well, to be honest, Lennart Helje is not exactly an illustrator for children’s books and, unfortunately, I couldn’t find much information about that illustrator, but I think it was worth mentioning him and making a tribute to his artwork.
