About the Artist

Hi there, thanks for visiting! I'm Erica Leigh, an illustrator from Massachusetts.

 

My career in art began 15 years ago, with a focus in painting public murals and portraits on canvas. It's been an incredible adventure that's made me a versatile artist and paved the way toward children's picture books, my true passion!

These days I work out of my art studio full-time, illustrating and doing book design for indie author clients. 

 

I primarily work in digital, but I'm largely informed by my background in traditional painting, and understanding of light, color & texture. My illustrations are vibrant, filled with personality and whimsical little "Easter eggs" for kids to discover. 

See my portfolio here. Check out my currently published projects here.

I'm heavily influenced by my years of teaching art enrichment classes to young children. It was during this time when I learned about what gets kids interested and engaged.

Right now I am working on authoring my own picture books -- a series with a curious little girl who uses her incredible imagination to help her solve every day challenges that children face. I have high aspirations to publish stories that inspire kids to keep asking questions and become their best selves. 

If you're interested in working together, I would love to hear from you.  You can reach me at erica@ericaleighart.com.
