ABOUT LEAH RUSSACK

  • I grew up in rural South Australia. My passion for picture books started when I created my first book, The Hat, to share with other classes at primary school. Today I live near Adelaide with my husband, three children and a lazy pug called Poncho. I find that my family provide constant inspiration for my writing and illustrations, from my eldest son’s inquisitive nature and love of all things gross to Poncho’s incredibly busy life.

ARTIST STATEMENT

  • When illustrating I work with a variety of art media from watercolour to digital, but I especially enjoy using acrylic. My illustrations have been described as character driven with an expressive and friendly style.
