ABOUT THE ARTIST
Melinda Szente was born in Hungary, spent her childhood years in England and as an adult moved to Austria. She always had a very creative mind. Words, books and languages always fascinated her. She considers both English and Hungarian to be her mother tongues, as she grew up bilingual. She spent most of her professional years teaching Business English and working as a Photographer. The idea for her first children's book came to her 2 years ago. She already had so many ideas in her head for the characters, that she decided to illustrate the book herself.
As in photography, she enjoys working with different techniques in illustrations too, sometimes even by combining them. She decided to showcase her journey and work here at , to share different techniques and her articles related to illustrations and books.
She finds great joy in writing books that appeal to a wider audience. Her first book, The Story of Time, was written both for children and adults.
