Laura G. Lee / Writing & Illustration


Laura Lee is a second generation Korean American author and illustrator of children’s picture books. With a background in architecture, Laura enjoys working both in traditional mediums of watercolor, color pencil, and digital design. Her books often touch upon themes of family, a child's creativity, and the search for connection.

Laura’s first book, CAT EYES, was published in 2018 by Ripple Grove Press (acquired by Chicago Review Press in 2021) and she is actively working on new titles. Throughout her career she's had the pleasure of wearing many hats- as a designer, researcher, filmmaker, and public health advocate. She lives in a restored midcentury home in the Bay Area with her husband David, and her two kids Oliver and Sabrina.
