Celebrating Lea Lyon - Children's Book Illustrator
A short while back we got to meet one of the most talented children's books illustrators in the business, Lea Lyon (her first name is pronounced Lee). The image to the left was created by Lea as a gift to President Obama. Here's a little bit about Lea from her biography on her web site: Lea Lyon is an award-winning children's book illustrator, painting teacher and portrait artist who has made a childhood dream come true. Lea loved to draw and paint as a child. She took art classes from a tiny white-haired artist who had converted her garage into a magical children's painting studio. Lea graduated to oil paints when she was 11. And - she wanted to be a children's book illustrator when she grew up. But life, as it often does, got in the way; College, raising a family, running a small doll and puppet business, then back to school for an MBA and into the corporate world. Now, at long last, Lea is a children's book illustrator. She is an active member of The SCBWI (Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.) Her illustration portfolios won awards twice at SCBWI National Conferences. As the Illustrator Coordinator of the San Francisco region of SCBWI she coordinates events for Bay Area illustrators. Now, let's celebrate some of the wonderful books Lea has illustrated and which we sell here at Reach And Teach! This amazing book written by Kathy Beckwith and illustrated by Lea Lyon tells the story of a lazy Summer day when a group of kids are bored and decide to play war. So, as we head off to the Home Schooling Conference in Sacramento, we want to celebrate the role of picture books in helping to create a more peaceful, inclusive, and green world and thank you to Lea Lyon for her incredible contribution to those efforts. Oh yes.... I almost forgot! Lea's latest book (which we'll soon carry), is called The Miracle Jar, and it is all about Hanukkah, connecting past and present and the continuing potential for miracles. We at Reach And Teach feel as though we've had our share of miracles, including the opportunity to meet and work with Lea.
