Elizabeth Zunon

Drawing and painting have always been among the most important things to illustrator Elizabeth Zunon. Born in Albany, NY and raised in the Ivory Coast (Cote d'Ivoire), West Africa. Surrounded by vibrant African fabrics and tropical vegetation, Elizabeth’s love of color and pattern grew, lingered, and is a fixture today in her works. After returning to the United States, Elizabeth graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 2006. Her picture book The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind was chosen as one of Amazon’s Best Children’s Books of 2012, among other awards.
