Laura Lee is a second generation Korean American author and illustrator of children’s picture books. With a background in design and architecture from Columbia University in New York, Laura channels her love of art and design into pen and paint, working primarily in traditional media of watercolor, ink, and colored pencil. Fascinated by the power of a child’s imagination, Laura makes books that often explore themes of creativity and our innate search for connection.
Laura’s first picture book, CAT EYES, was published in 2018 by Ripple Grove Press and she is actively working on new titles. In other lives, Laura has worn many hats as a journalist, public health advocate, film script reader, and most recently, product designer for artificial intelligence. She now lives in Northern California with her husband David, and her children Oliver and Sabrina.
