About the Illustrator

Leigh Hedstrom is a freelance illustrator who lives on the Sunshine Coast with her husband and son. She grew up in South Africa, drawing every day and dreaming that one day she might become an animator. In the early 2000s, hand-drawn animation studios all around the world closed their doors, so she had to find the next best thing, which turned out to be the actual best thing - illustration.

What Leigh loves about illustrating is that she's been able to work across a bunch of different industries: publishing, education, advertising, and more recently, toy design. Leigh enjoys the perks of a work-from-home job, such as the privacy to sing along to show tunes and having one of her two cats always within arm's reach. Leigh is also the illustrator of the bestselling Stevie Louise series.
