Media friendly Lorena Siminovich is a San Francisco-based artist, designer, and illustator. Her one-of-a-kind, hand-assembled collages have been sold in such stores as Pottery Barn and Anthropolgie. Her company, Petit Collage, has been featured on Web sites such as Design Sponge, Urban Outfitters, and Apartment Therapy and in magazines like 'House Beautiful' and 'Country Living.' Lorena started her 'Petit Collage' line in 2006, with the idea of offering affordable art (wall decor and accessories) for children (and grownups), with a modern feel. The collages are made with found, recycled, painted, and vintage papers on maple plywood. In 2001 Lorena worked as an art director and product developer creating fun stationery and puzzles for Galison and Mudpuppy. She has written and illustrated several children's books, including 'In My Nest' and 'In My Pond' (CB, Spring 2009).
