Leigh Anne likes to illustrate spunky, whimsical characters for picture books, middle grade, and more. When not drawing, she can be found reading (all the things!), searching for birds (hello, birder!), or baking any number of sweets that will rot your teeth (don't forget to floss and eat your veggies)!
Leigh Anne received a Writing with the Stars Mentorship for 2019. She holds a BFA in Creative Writing and a BA in Studio Art from the University of North Carolina Wilmington. She also holds a post-baccalaureate Science Illustration Certificate from California State University, Monterey Bay.
