Claudia de Weck was born in Zurich in 1953. She pursued her artistic education in Hamburg, Paris and Zurich. She works as an illustrator and author for French, German and Swiss publishers. Her job combines everything that she finds fun: books, stories, drawing, art, people, children and, again and again, animals. Her “visual readings” for school classes are very popular. They feature not only reading aloud and listening, but also seeing, drawing, and contemplating things both great and small.
