Kary Lee | Visual Storyteller   { illustrator }

Kary did’t get coloring books as a kid. Her mom gave her a pad of newsprint and a huge basket of crayons. If she wasn’t drawing, she could be found in her back yard, painting backdrops on the sliding glass doors for her theater productions. After college Kary landed a job as an art director but soon realized she was on the wrong side of the desk After winning a portfolio award at her first LA SCBWI conference she was hooked. She’s illustrated five picture books including Dizzy, a Mom’s Choice award winner, and is the INW SCBWI Illustrator Coordinator.
