BARBARA DILORENZO graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in illustration, and studied painting at the Arts Students League of New York. In 2014 she received the Dorothy Markinko Scholarship Award from the Rutgers University Council on Children’s Literature. She also earned signature membership in the New England Watercolor Society. Barbara is excited about her debut picture book, RENATO THE LION (Viking, forthcoming). When she isn’t teaching at the Arts Council of Princeton, Barbara can be found in the children’s book section of the library, or drawing chalk illustrations on the menu board at her husband’s restaurant, 12 Farms, in Hightstown, NJ. She lives in central Jersey with her husband, son–and two Anatolian shepherds that love to shred paper (an illustrator’s nightmare). Barbara is an illustrator member of the Society of Illustrators. You can find her online at www.barbaradilorenzo.com and @wavepaint.
