Jinhee Lee, Author-Illustrator of ‘One Morning’, ‘The Acorn Time’, Illustrator of ‘My Grandma Reads Me Books’

I studied fine arts at Sungkyunkwan University in Seoul and was selected the distinguished illustrator of the CJ Picture Book Festival. I want to create picture books that children, adults and animals love. I like forests and strolling about them, seeing all the furry animals and writing about small sparkling moments in my mind at quiet moments. I also draw pictures of my conversations with acquintances, the air during the walk, and the cuteness found. My picture book is a piece of thread that is gathered in such small pieces. I want to put the moments that are in my daily life in my writing and drawing with a pure heart resembling animals.
