Hi there! My Name is Lisa and I am an illustrator, educator, picture book enthusiast, tea-drinker, dog-petter, pattern-lover and owner at the online shop extravaganza Draw Me A LIon.
Mostly animals, kids, flowers, fauna, patterns and funny characters. I'm a big believer in spontaneous, free and expressive line work and bold colours. I would love to collaborate on something awesome with you, so please do get in touch!
I have written & illustrated two Picture books. 'The Day it all blew Away' (nominated for the Christie Harris Illustrated Children's Literature Prize in 2008), and 'Paulina P. for Petersen'. Recently I illustrated Bear's Winter Party a picture book by Deborah Hodge as well as the first book in the middle grade series Clara Humble. More to come sooooon!:)
I enjoy teaching classes on picture book illustration at the Emily Carr University of Art & Design's Continuing Studies department.
If you're a teacher or librarian interested in having me come to your classroom for a fun reading & presentation of my picture books please get in touch!
