Story
Introduction
Dante DeStefano is an Atlanta, Georgia native. At the age of four, the first job she ever wanted when she grew up was to be Peewee Herman. After realizing that there was no call for another Peewee, she then decided that she wanted to be a full-time artist. She has not stopped creating things ever since.

In 2004, Dante interned as a production assistant and stagehand at The Center For Puppetry Arts where she experienced working in a professional workshop for the first time. Soon after, she attended The Savannah College of Art and Design to study Sequential art. In 2007, Dante transferred to Portfolio Center to study illustration and writing. There, she was equipped with an arsenal of creative tools and technical skills. She is very excited to be graduating this spring in 2009.

Within her time at Portfolio Center, Dante has created illustrations for Jackson Fish Market, Tania Rochelle (poetry) and The Cumming Playhouse.

She also teaches art class at The First Presbyterian Church’s Child Development Center and any other place where art can be shared with children.

Dante currently resides in Midtown.
