I am the illustrator of over 30 books for young readers. I was born on Staten Island in New York. When I was little, diapers still had pins. My family was big and Italian and filled with lots of love and kisses and incredibly delicious food. When I got big, I studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology and the Art Academy of Munich. I have lived in Germany, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, California and Italy and now in beautiful New Hampshire with my husband and two children.
I speak fluent German and okay Italian and when I am not busy digging in my garden, travelling, kayaking, African dancing, dundun drumming, cooking, cleaning, raking leaves, painting walls and shoveling snow, I am happily in my studio making books for children.
