Zoe Persico is an illustrator with a love for the cute, the colorful, and all things whimsical. Along with writing and creating artwork for publishing, she also works as a freelance visual development artist for animation and participates in multiple gallery shows each year. When she’s not drawing and painting away, you can find her either hiking through lush forests, playing Dungeons & Dragons, or snuggled up with a cup of coffee or tea. Born and bred in the Midwest, she currently resides in the rainy Pacific Northwest with her partner and dog. Her current publishing clients are Random House/Golden Books, Hachette/Running Press, Macmillan/Feiwel and Friends, American Girl and Simon & Schuster.
