And Walby & Sticks: an illustrated MG, post-apocalyptic adventure. This site contains a folio of these and other selected book and film projects. Please enjoy taking a look around.
Daria Polichetti lives with her family in the Los Angeles area. She spent many years working on VFX for film before turning her focus to books. She and her husband, film and VFX editor Nathaniel Park, also co-founded the boutique print shop Print Vogue, which specializes in alternative printing materials.
Daria is the daughter of a retired US diplomat. She grew up living and traveling in Afghanistan, where she was born, Thailand, Africa, India & Hawaii. She then attended Rhode Island School of Design for her BFA & The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston for her MFA, before moving back west in '04. Besides reading, writing & painting, she nurtures a great love of the environment, travel, mystery, history & imagination, and has a large collection of early 1900s glass plate negatives.
When she and her family aren't in LA, they're usually in Hawaii, surfing in the aqua waves on Oahu’s white sand beaches or reading books under the Ironwood trees.
