Lee White 200pix

Lee White spends his days breathing life into his imaginary world. He works primarily in watercolor, but likes to include all sorts of media, such as ink, colored pencil and collage.

He has illustrated a number of children's books, including What Are You Glad About? What Are You Mad About? and The Lost Track of Time. His latest, Emma and the Whale, was released in March 2017.

He has also done commercial work for various clients, including Marks & Spencer, Amazon, Laika, United Airlines, Verizon, Disney and National Geographic. He is represented by Rodeen Literary Management and Spinning Yarn Illustration Agency.

When not busy with client projects, Lee creates his own personal work, which is shown at various galleries and art fairs throughout the year. Many of these images will also soon be published in a fancy coffee table book, which can be pre-ordered here.

He also teaches all of his watercolor secrets through the Society of Visual Storytelling, an online art school for artists of all skill levels.

Lee graduated with honors from ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena, California, and earned his MFA in illustration, also with honors, from the University of Hartford in Connecticut.

He lives with his wife, little boy and grumpy old cat in a 100-year-old house in Portland, Oregon.
