Leeré (pronounced Lee-ray) Aldrich was raised in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest. Washington State is also where she went to college, majoring in graphic design. She now lives in the ski resort town of Park City, Utah where she raised two children and enjoys many friends. She is an avid skier, snowshoer, and mountain biker and also enjoys hiking with her golden lab, Denali. Leeré works in her home studio and draws inspiration for her illustrations from her surroundings; you can often spot a moose, elk or deer in Leeré’s yard. Her illustrations are inspired by life and therefore she has an endless supply of fresh, fun ideas.
