From Lea Lyon's 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.

Lea Lyon
San Francisco illustrators' day coordinator
As a child Lea wanted to be a children's book illustrator when she grew up.Then she grew up and forgot all about her dream.Although she took many art classes and painted in oils in Jr. High and high school, her creative outlet while she was raising a family was making puppets, humorous dolls and soft sculpture mannequins, all of which she sold to stores.Eventually she went back to school, got an MBA and started working in the high tech field.
When she saw a listing in the UC Berkeley extension catalogue for a class in "Illustrating Children's Books" she remembered her dream and took the class.She joined SCBWI and has attended many conferences and workshops.She continues to take painting classes to hone her craft and also paints portraits of children.Her portfolio won awards twice at the National SCBWI conference and now she is a published illustrator.
Her dream has come true.
Lea has illustrated two award-winning picture books for Tilbury House Publishers.
