Simona’s most recent publication, How Art Is Made: In the Catskills (2017) is a collection of interviews with some of the world’s most accomplished artists who live and work in the Catskill Mountains. Five painters and illustrators, two ceramicists and printmakers, one sculptor, one weaver, and one writer discuss what inspires and moves them, what draws them to their medium of choice, what materials they use, how they approach a new artistic project, how they deal with setbacks, and how they celebrate success.

Nine of these artists are formally trained at prestigious art schools; one is self-taught. What they all have in common is a rigorous studio practice, discipline, and the desire and curiosity to learn new things, and share them with the world.
