Leanne is an author/illustrator with eight published books including the William the Wild series, focusing on nature play and our amazing natural heritage of wildlife and wild spaces.
Having lived in the remote north and the beautiful southern, Leanne’s passion for our shared wilderness is without boundaries.
As an experienced teacher, she is happy to demonstrate the illustrating process from idea, drafts, storyboards, sketches and final illustrations. Using PowerPoint, puppetry and performance drawing, Leanne will inspire children to unplug, connect and revel in their natural world. She has spoken to adults (through her role as an art/music teacher) about the beauty of encouraging their children to unplug, engage and build a love for the natural world and the importance of imaginative and creative play.
Leanne is passionate about building children’s literacy.
