About me

 

Amélie Legault, artiste québécoise, illustratrice et autrice jeunesse, Amelie Legault, canadian artist, illustrator and children's book author

I am Amélie, an artist, illustrator and children's book author from Montreal, Canada.
When I was a child, my mother taught me to paint. I painted a sparrow on a branch, a puppy on a pink background on an oval canvas (it was really kitsch...) and of course too many cats. As a teenager, I  was copying some of my father’s vinyl record covers and I marveled at the portraits of American stars my grandfather drew.
After studying visual arts and art history, as well as several years working in bookstores, I started this adventure with 6 pink flamingo birthday cards. The collections have since expanded with animals riding bicycles, flamingos doing yoga, athletic kiwi birds, birds wearing shoes and animals talking on the phone. I draw these whimsical animals with pencils, markers, ink pens and gouache paint. I have recently wrote and illustrated my first children's books À la recherche de Rosie with publisher Alaska, and Simon le saumon with publisher Les Malins. More picture books are coming soon!
