Angelia McLean an American author/illustrator living and working in Central France. Having been grounded from markers due to drawing on her younger sister when she was about 5, Angelia has never stopped creating-although no longer on a human substrate!
She illustrates in watercolor, gouache and cut paper. Her characters are independent and adventurous who always read, explore and learn. They tend to be a little quirky, whimsical and endearing. Angelia has illustrated for other authors and is currently writing a series with her own character, Esmeralda, who travels all over France meeting new friends and discovering new things.
Working in many media allows her to create not one 'style' but creates a flexibility so she can adapt to different projects and collaborations which she loves to do. From cute to scientific, digital and animations-art and illustration has been her identity not just a vocation.
Angelia lives in some of France's most beautiful countryside and will often be found walking with her Yorkie, taking tons of pictures and painting this serene, lost in time and magical place she calls home. "My studio is everywhere I find myself-come join me!"
