Born in the very last breath of the Baby Boom in Camden, New Jersey, I sold my first drawing in the 6th grade. It was a picture of a friend at school. When he took it home his mother framed it, hung it on the wall and sent me $5. She said it was "real artwork" and she wanted to pay for it. I have created and sold artwork ever since.
After attending the Art Institute of Philadelphia, I worked in a succession of offset and silkscreen print shops in the Philadelphia/South Jersey area and played the guitar in local rock bands.
Along with the printing industry I went digital in the late 80's and worked on one of the first Mac's. No more waiting for typesetting, no more paste-ups. Unbelievable. I have worked with Adobe Photoshop since it's first release and to this day I consider the things that it does miraculous.
In the mid 90's I officially opened my freelance graphics business: Carol Milazzo Artist. For a select group of businesses I handle all printed matter and advertising in all media. I freelance as a production artist and copywriter for print shops and advertising publications. I sell line drawings and photo illustrations to offset and silkscreen printers.
This year I am excited to announce the release of my first novel: The Flavor of Hearts.
