My name is Nancy Lemon, and I am a Charleston, SC based illustrator. I write and illustrate books for children, mostly, but also like creating designs for home goods and apparel. I would describe my work as whimsical narrative.
I specialize in childrens illustration, digital art, illustration, mixed media.
