Short biography
Diane Dillon is a celebrated American magazine and book-cover artist, and a children's book author and illustrator. The vast majority of her work was done collaboratively with her husband, Leo Dillon, with whom she won her many awards.

Born in Los Angeles in 1933, Diane Sorber was educated at the Parsons School of Design in New York City, where she met Leo Dillon, who was initially a fierce artistic competitor. Their fifty-year collaboration, after their eventual marriage, resulted in over one hundred speculative fiction book and magazine covers, and numerous picture-book illustrations. They were jointly awarded the Caldecott Medal in 1976 and 1977, the only artists to be so honored twice in a row. The Dillons had one son, Lee Dillon, who also became an artist, and with whom they collaborated on Nancy Willard's Pish, Posh, Said Hieronymus Bosch. Diane Dillon's first solo project, published after Leo's death in 2012, is the recent I Can Be Anything! Don't Tell Me I Can't. (source: Wikipedia)
