About Me

Angelia McLean an American author, illustrator and photographer. Having been grounded from markers due to drawing on her younger sister when she was about 5, Angelia has never stopped creating-although no longer on a human substrate! 


She illustrates in watercolor, gouache and cut paper. Her characters are independent and adventurous who always read, explore and learn. They tend to be a little quirky, whimsical and endearing. Angelia has illustrated for other authors and is currently writing a series with her own character, Esmeralda, who travels all over France meeting new friends and discovering new things. 


Angelia lives in some of the most beautiful countryside in France and will often be found walking with her Yorkie, taking tons of pictures and painting this serene, lost in time and magical place she calls home. CONTACT
