Gabriella Eva Nagy has always been consistent and original about her collection of children’s illustrated books. Shiny and vibrant colors characterize them. Most of Nagy’s subjects are about nature and animals and natural landscapes. Readers can easily distinguish Gabriella Eva Nagy’s brand because they feature bright outdoor sceneries such as gardens, streams, forests, meadows, mountains, rivers, and the cold, beautiful artic (Moonlight Dance, Starlight Lullaby, and Winter Dreams). The books’ characters are mostly animals such as butterflies, insects, marine life, penguins, and birds.
Another thing that separates Nagy’s art and books apart from other children’s illustrated books is her visual images’ style and quality. While many kid’s books contain pictures rendered in 2D flat colors, Gabriella does her illustrations using a rich palette of shiny, shimmering, vibrant colors. She also renders her own style in terms of composition, perspective, and angles.
Indeed, the young author has carved a unique brand of children’s illustrated books that children love.
