Biographical and Professional InformationSilvia Hidalgo is an author and illustrator. She moved to the United States in 1998. While studying for her citizenship test, she quickly found that the materials provided by the government were lacking. In order to more easily absorb the information, Hidalgo started her own illustrated reference to civics facts and American history essentials. She collected her findings in How to Be an American, a freshly designed and illustrated two-color guide to all things America. Currently an artist as well as a freelance graphic designer and illustrator, Hidalgo has worked for corporations such as SRAM and Motorola.
