About



About
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 inspired 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. The intricate work is hand drawn in ink and color is applied digitally, and she is greatly influenced by classical storybook illustrators and her favorite plants and animals.
