Leeza Hernandez spent her spare time as a child scribbling on every possible surface. It soon led to career in art and design, where she learned to keep her art on paper and off her mum’s living room walls. She grew up in the south of England, and leapt to this side of the pond ten years ago. Leeza graduated with a degree in art, design and communication, but it was working as an art director that threw her into illustration. Her latest includes THIS IS THE DAY! by Amy Parker (Scholastic), DID YOU BURP? by April Pulley Sayre (Charlesbridge) and the new chapter-book series MIA MAYHEM (Simon & Schuster). Leeza’s other books include NEVER PLAY MUSIC RIGHT NEXT TO THE ZOO by John Lithgow (Simon & Schuster) and a trio of EAT YOUR HOMEWORK books by Ann McCallum (Charlesbridge). She currently dwells in rural New Jersey with her husband, daughter and fluffy cat, Maisy. You can visit Leeza at LeezaWorks.com or on Instagram.
