ABOUT LEONA HOSACK
I studied illustration and children’s books at Umass at Dartmouth, and have illustrations in several magazines and publications published by The Us Baha’i Publishing Trust, including Willie and The Number Three Door in 1990. I have written and illustrated a book for middle readers called Babysitter Blues which is available on Amazon Kindle as an ebook, and will soon be published in print form. We have launched a Kickstarter project to help realize this goal! I also have a picture book Kamal’s Day which has just been released by Bellwood Press, out of Evanston, Ill. and will be available later this year!https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1822318942/print-release-of-babysitter-blues-no-werewolves-in
I love playing with cut paper, collage and drawing to create pictures for children’s books! My work as a Silhouette and Caricature artist has greatly enhanced my love of exploring shape and working with paper and how it can interact with the medium of drawing!
