Matthew Trueman grew up in Friuli Venezia Giulia, 45 minutes north of Venice in northern Italy.
He returned to the States to attend the Ringling School of Art and Design, and graduated with a B.F.A in illustration.
He works from a studio in his home by the Delaware River, where he lives with his wife Anna, a "sommelière",
a book artist and a printmaker, and their daughter Mina.
His current projects include an upcoming children's book for Candlewick Press to be published in January 2009
children's books for Random House, Houghton Mifflin Publishers, Dutton Children's Books,Chronicle Children Books
and an upcoming children's book for Farrar Straus & Giroux as well as corporate and editorial work.
His passion for food, eating it and never cooking it makes of him the best gourmand around.
He also likes the ourtdoors, whether jogging or baling hay in his friends' farm.
