Hansel and Gretel

I came to the MA programme with a strong interest in narrative illustration so my MA research project is centred on picture book illustration – in particular, Hansel and Gretel by the Brothers Grimm.

Rich with universal themes – abandonment; desire and fulfillment; courage in the face of captivity; freedom and restoration – this story has been retold and illustrated many times. However, at the outset I felt that because the imagery in Hansel and Gretel is not overly prescriptive there was freedom to impose my own visual interpretation with the intention of creating a believable other-world.
