The author

Born in France, Zeline Benitez has lived in the United States for more than 50 years. A mostly self-taught artist, Zeline has long been attracted to doodling in various forms because she likes that she can create art where no two pieces are exactly alike. She believes that this free-form type of drawing frees the imagination and the spirit, the results of which show through one’s creativity.
