My name is Laura Lee and I am an author, illustrator, and designer.  I grew up in the sleepy mountains of West Virginia where I spent many formative days in the great outdoors collecting rocks, climbing trees, and observing the miniature life of ants.  As a child, I adored miniatures and scale models- their intricate details revealing stories through color, light, symbol, and texture.  This passion eventually led to a career in architectural and product design, where I visualized and made models of many things— thoughtfully considering their role in storytelling and human interaction.  

After a long professional career in design, I’ve returned to my passion for storytelling and discovery through unique products and illustrated books.  I live in San Mateo, California with my husband David and son, Oliver.
