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. 

You can contact me at     info@oxkfarm.com  I'll be glad to answer any questions.
