About the Author

Hi, I am Kathy Salanitro, I have written and illustrated my first children's book. The Oxen and the Spiders.

In 2012 I began this fun, frustrating and fulfilling adventure of becoming an author and illustrator. Three years later, with the help of book designer Robin Wrighton, The Oxen and the Spiders is a reality.

Each illustration for this book was created on 16" x 20" canvas using acrylic paint. With the help of many friends and family, I perfected my story and combined each image to create the book you see today.
