Boris Lee

Originally from Taiwan, now I am based in Edinburgh. I love picturebooks, colours, animals, the natural world and stories. Being a picturebook author and illustrator has been my life goal from a young age, I aim to create profound stories with childlike, vibrant and heartwarming illustrations.

Please feel free to contact me, I will be happy to hear from your:
