Kati Hites, a Hungarian American, grew up in Oakland, New York, and Europe. She studied at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, focusing on children's book illustration. Kati also spent time studying astrophysics at Columbia University. When she isn't drawing or painting, she's probably gardening, bird-watching, or reading about astronomy. A constant source of inspiration is her dog, Matyi, and their adventures together.
Kati Hites loves to visit schools and talk to young writers!
