Illustrator Sue Rama is both a writer and illustrator for children. Largely self-taught as an artist, Sue studied fimmaking and literature and worked as a graphic designer, all of which helped prepare her for the challenge of telling a children's story. Sue lives in East Windsor Hill, Connecticut, where she enjoys work, walking, and meditation.
Sue is the 2005 recipient of the Tomie dePaola Award awarded at the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators Winter Conference. This prize was established and is funded by author/illustrator Tomie dePaola to honor the illustrator that he considers the "most promising" among the exhibitors at the conference.
