Author & Illustrator
Working as a greetings card illustrator, Lisa pressed pause on her career to bring up three wonderful children: Lily, Skyla and Sonny. Lisa’s work is inspired by her family life. Lily and Bear began when her daughter, Skyla, drew a picture of lots of little, coloured hearts and said, “This is the colour of my love for you, Mummy.” Lisa created a screen print based on this drawing, which you can see on the endpapers to Lily and Bear. Lisa wanted to explore her children’s pictures and their child-like way of looking at the world and Lily and Bear was born.
