Hi, I'm Lee Dawn! I'm a professional picture painter currently based in California. I work primarily in watercolor, ink, and gouache, but have been known to tinker digitally when needed. My illustrations have found themselves as book art, posters, botanical illustration, children's illustration, and anything else shiny enough to catch my attention.
When not working with clients, I create my own illustrated projects, like Root People. I also can be found peddling my wares at various conventions, drinking espresso by the pot, or hiking in dubiously hike-able locations.
