Anita Lovitt



Anita Lovitt is a multitalented artist, designer, teacher and author.  She was born and raised in Philadelphia.  Because she was always interested in science she majored in chemistry at Penn State University but after taking a summer art course she changed her major to art and graduated with a BFA in illustration from Philadelphia College of Art.  She began her professional career as an artist with Hallmark in Kansas City.  In order to expand her artistic experience she studied theater design at the University of Kansas and moved to New York City to work as a freelance illustrator and later as a Graphic Design Coordinator at the Shakespeare Festival.
