Jacqui Lee

Jacqui Lee’s illustrations are focused on storytelling and are inspired by the world around her. Jacqui's I Am Josephine was a CCBC Best Book for Kids and Teens and she was awarded an Alcuin Society Award for Excellence in Book Design for Murilla Gorilla and the Hammock Problem. Her work is fun, cheerful and aims to bring a smile to people’s faces. She loves the handmade and textural look of gouache paint and often carries a sketchbook with her, especially while travelling. An alumni of the Alberta University of the Arts, she now lives in London, UK.
