Illustrator Gallery - Leanne Coelho
I’m a picture book writer and illustrator. I’m also wife to my wife, Sarah, and mum to our cat, Pawtia. I love sushi, coffee and rainy days!
I grew up in South Africa where my every scribble and story was awarded the high honor of a place on my parent’s fridge. We later moved to Portugal for six years where I developed my skills, inspired and encouraged by a fantastic art teacher.
As a groan-up I moved to Hertfordshire, England, where I met my wife, our cat and my love of picture books.
I studied graphic design in London and completed a course in picture book writing and illustrating through Curtis Brown Creative. I have worked as a designer, copywriter, freelance illustrator and commissioned artist.
Over the last few years I have been writing and illustrating my own picture books.
