Kary Lee | Visual Storyteller { illustrator } 
If she wasn't in her back yard painting backdrops on her sliding glass door, Kary could be found editing her screen plays or directing the neighborhood kids in one of her productions. After college she landed a job as an art director but when she started hiring illustrators she realized she was on the wrong side of the desk. She took a painting class and discovered SCBWI. After winning a portfolio award at her first LA Conference she was hooked. Five picture books and a Mom's Choice award later, she's never looked back.
