Zunon, Elizabeth

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 ninth illustrated children’s book, The Legendary Miss Lena Horne (Simon & Schuster), was published in January 2017. www.lizzunon.com
