Lea Lyon is an award-winning children’s book illustrator and portrait artist who has made a childhood dream come true. Lea loved to draw and paint as a child, taking art classes and painting in oils when she was 12 years old. And, she wanted to be a children’s book illustrator when she grew up.
She ended up going in a different direction; college, raising a family, running a small doll and puppet business, then back to school for an MBA and into the corporate world as a marketing product manager.
However, Lea never gave up on her dream and has now illustrated half a dozen children’s books and is writing as well.
Lea lives in Richmond, CA with her husband.
