About the Authorstrator: Lesley McGee

A Melbourne-based artist, designer and photographer, Lesley lives and works in the leafy foothills of the Dandenong Ranges. Long fascinated by the intricate styles of Norman Rockwell, Robert Ingpen, Graeme Base and Frida Kahlo, Lesley also looks to her extensive travel experiences for inspiration. Passionate about experimentation, she loves working with vibrant pencil, pastel and inks. Texture, light and detail are also a dominant feature of her work.

Her first illustration commission for Little Pink Dog Books was Evie is All Earsby author Kellie Byrnes, followed by Night Lights  by author Inda Ahmad Zahri, due for release September 2021. A third book, Emma’s Freckles by Sarah Wallace, is currently on her drawing board.

The Fabulous Fruit Shake Mystery will be the 4th picture book Lesley will illustrate for Little Pink Dog Books, and also her first as Authorstrator.
