VALERIA PETRONE


BIOGRAPHY

Valeria Petrone
Valeria Petrone began her art education in her native Italy and then moved to London, to pursue further studies. Valeria zooms around on a motor scooter, dividing her time between the historical center of Rome and the more modern area of Milan. In her wonderfully successful career, Valeria juggles high profile clients like United Airlines while always working on a children’s book. She has illustrated over twenty books that have been published in Japan, France, Italy and the U.S. Although Valeria has won many illustration awards, it was a especially exciting to receive a 2008 3×3 Gold Medal for her book “Il Pittore.”
