Kary Lee | Visual Storyteller   { illustrator } 
Kary didn’t get coloring books as a kid. Her mom gave her a pad of newsprint and a huge basked of crayons. If she wasn’t in her back yard painting backdrops on her sliding glass door  she could be found editing her screen plays and directing the neighborhood kids for one of her back yard 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. Five picture books later, including a Mom’s Choice Award Winner, Dizzy.
