Renée Andriani is the illustrator of Paris Hop!, Rome Romp!, A Gefilte Fishy Tale, No Naptime for Janie! A Hanukkah Tale, Bunny Romero’s White House Adventure: The Whole Megillah!, and A Home for Hope! Renée grew up in Connecticut and studied Illustration at the Rhode Island School of Design. Working in an array of media, including pen and ink, pencil, dye, watercolor, and digital, she has illustrated numerous children's books, including This School Year Will Be the Best! by Kay Winters, Don't Know Much About the Fifty States by Kenneth C. Davis, and the Baby on the Way series by William and Martha Sears and Christie Watts Kelly.
Her work also appears in magazines and on Hallmark's Shoebox greeting cards. An avid hiker and cookie baker, she draws inspiration from doodling in her sketchbook, being outdoors, and hanging out with funny people. She lives in Kansas with her husband, three teenagers, two big dogs, and the nagging feeling that she forgot to pick up something important on the way home.
