After earning her MFA from Pratt Institute she (Lalena, not Olive) designed for Blue’s Clues and The Wonder Pets. She has created information graphics for The New York Times and makes fine art painting and sculpture. After hours, Lalena rocks out with her daughter as the guitar-and-drums duo The Mothermold while her husband and the dog hold their ears.
