About the Author: Inda Ahmad Zabri
About the Illustrator: Lesley McGee
Influenced by the intricate styles of Norman Rockwell, Robert Ingpen, Graeme Base and Frida Kahlo, she also looks to her extensive travel experiences for inspiration.
Currently working on her first illustration commission Evie is All Ears, in conjunction with author Kellie Byrnes and Little Pink Dog Books, Lesley is also looking forward to collaboration on her next exciting new project.
Lesley’s early creative work featured landscape oils and gouache caricatures.
Her passion for experimentation has led her to use vibrant pencil, pastel and inks. Texture, light and detail are a dominant feature of her work.
Lesley’s publishing foray began with the ambition to self-publish her own manuscript and illustration project. Featuring Milly and a cast of magical creatures, she hopes to bring these adventures to life in the near future also.
