About the Author

Laura Watson

As a freelance illustrator working in Toronto, Laura Watson has been creating whimsical illustrations for children's books, educational materials, magazines and various retail applications since graduating from Sheridan College's Interpretive Illustration program, in Oakville, Ontario, in 1995. Born and raised in the heart of the lovely Kawartha Lakes region in Peterborough, Ontario, Laura also studied Fine Art at York University and graduated with an Honours degree in Visual Arts.

In the past few years, Laura has enjoyed illustrating four trade children's books (most recently, Peek-a-Little Boo, written by award-winning author and poet, Sheree Fitch, and published by Orca Books) and countless school publications for subjects as diverse as poetry and math. Laura lives in the east end of Toronto with her husband, and works in a converted backyard garage studio surrounded by a slightly unkempt garden and several fat raccoons. She enjoys the outdoors, runs often and from time to time loads camping gear onto the back of her bicycle and heads off on vacation.
