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 Love, Santa and Emma and the Whale. His latest, Kate, Who Tamed The Wind, will be released in February 2018.

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 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 are included in a fancy coffee table book of his artwork, which came out in August 2017.

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 two rambunctious kitties in a 100-year-old house in Portland, Oregon.
