About Bridget Marzo
Bridget Marzo is an award-winning children’s book illustrator and author of over 15 books for children for English, US and French publishers including Tate Publishing UK, Bloomsbury and Bayard France. She grew up near London and as a child spent summer holidays with her French cousins communicating mostly through drawing. Later she moved to Senlis, near Paris and became a fluent French speaker, illustrating for French and international publishers and teaching 2-D and illustration at Parsons Paris School of Design. Simplifying her life, her books (and her name, from Bridget Strevens-Marzo), she set up in London in 2011 but keeps a base in France. When not running picture book workshops somewhere in the world – including the China Bookworm Festival – she illustrates and writes pictures books that combine her life-long interests in children, animals and playing with words and pictures.
