Angela Rizza graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC in 2011 and since, has been creating artwork in Mahopac, NY. Her work is influenced greatly by the wildlife around her home, and her favorite stories she read growing up. When working on children's books, she creates images that appeals to her inner child, drawings with lots of details, color, and quality that captures the attention of the viewer. Her intricate work is hand drawn in ink and color is applied digitally, and she is greatly influenced by classical storybook illustatrors and her favorite plants and animals.
Besides artwork, Angela enjoys crossfit, instagramming food, and going for walks with her birds. She is represented by her awesome agent Helen over at Astound.US and also works with publishers in the UK.
