Today, we’ll be visiting Barbara DiLorenzo, a New Jersey-based illustrator, writer, and teacher! Her books include Renato and the Lion (Viking Books, 2017) and Quincy: The Chameleon Who Couldn’t Blend In (Little Bee Books, 2018). In addition to this, Barbara has gone skydiving, hang gliding, surfing, and whitewater rafting. YES! In 2019, we were delighted to invite her to our library to read, make chameleons, and chat with the kids about her creative process. You can also visit her website and her Instagram!
Thank you for including me! Here are some photos from my studio…this is a close-up of some of the art hanging up on a line:
I sit at this desk and Zoom teach art classes – hence the big light and mic stands to hold cameras. I’m a messy artist, so I have to clean up frequently. Otherwise the clay and paint would be all over the keyboard and mouse.
This is another angle of this area – showing that one whole drafting table is covered in paint and other supplies. Even vitamins. Those are important!
This is my flat file, which holds all my art and nice papers. Lots of art materials in the bookshelf to the side.
Many thanks for sharing! Images courtesy of Barbara DiLorenzo
