About the Illustrator
Growing up with a pencil always in hand, Michael LaDuca always knew his calling was in the arts. He started taking drawing and painting classes at age eight at a local Lewiston, NY, art studio and continued to hone his artistic education at Lewiston-Porter High School. After high school, he attended Edinboro University with a focus in animation and illustration.
Today, as a master of character expression and still-framed storytelling, Michael produces brilliant illustrations for children’s books that charm audiences and bring storybooks to life. You can explore his collection of children’s book illustrations by visiting www.luminusmedia.com.
