Rebecca Santo is an illustrator based just outside of Cleveland, Ohio. She attended the Cleveland Institute of Art, earning her BFA in Illustration. Her areas of focus lie in publishing, editorial, and design. Growing up as a dozy daydreamer, Rebecca’s childhood goal was to illustrate the magical dreams she had when she was young. When not illustrating whimsical fairy tales, she is constantly inspired by the simple wonders in her everyday surroundings, from nature to music, to even her favorite foods. Keeping her childhood imagination by her side, she brings mood and emotion to life through color, light, and texture. Aside from illustrating, Rebecca’s favorite things to do include listening to music, traveling, and drinking copious amounts of coffee and peppermint tea. She currently works from home in Ohio, but someday she hopes to live and work in Europe. Rebecca is also a member of SCBWI and Illustrators For Hire, and has earned several awards and recognitions for her work, including The Cleveland Institute of Art, dPICTUS, and SCBWI.
