Leigh Anne Carter is an author-illustrator living in North Carolina. She is a member of SCBWI and leads a local illustrator critique group (the members are awesome–she’s inspired every meeting).

Leigh Anne makes her illustrations using traditional and digital media and likes to draw characters that have a lot of whimsy or spunk. When not drawing, she can be found searching for birds, listening to podcasts, or baking churro-inspired doughnuts.

She has a BA in Studio Art and a BFA in Creative Writing from the University of North Carolina Wilmington, and a graduate certificate in Science Illustration from California State University, Monterey Bay.

Leigh Anne received a Writing With the Stars Mentorship for 2019.
