Constanza Basaluzzo was born in Argentina in the mid 70’s where she still lives with her husband, Javier Gonzales Burgos and her little kitten, Nina Kodama. She was always drawn to the arts and at the young age of 9, Grandpa Luis (her most enthusiastic fan) decided to sponsor her first drawing and painting class. Since then, she never lost the passion for interpreting the world from a child’s point of view - with bright colors, mixed textures, and obsession for details. She graduated from the Universidad de Buenos Aires and concentrated her career on graphic communication for children. She works in digital format and since 2003, has published work in several books, stationary cards, and children’s magazines in Argentina. In her spare time, she enjoys reading (especially children’s books!), spending time outdoors with her cat, and visiting toy stores.|
