Haydee Ullfig (aka Heidi) emigrated from Argentina when she was 10 years old.
She majored in Fine Art at William Rainey Harper College in Palatine, Illinois, returning to college later in life and graduating with a BBA degree in 1998 from the University of Miami. Currently she is employed as an Office Manager/Interior Designer/Purchasing Agent for an Architectural and Interior Design firm.
Throughout the years she has managed to further develop her creativity and been able to implement it in various projects, including a Children's Activity Book commissioned by the Caribe Hilton Hotel in Puerto Rico, commercial storyboards and children's portraits in pastel. She is currently doing intense research for a new and exciting project: writing and illustrating a multicultural picture book (to be written in English, Spanish and Portuguese) whose endearing and unusual main character happens to be an endangered species.
