Angelia McLean

Illustrator Photographer Designer

Illustration for books and children's stories, I create fantasy secret worlds with photography and other lands with dolls and costuming. It all started long ago...

Once upon a time there was a little girl who was grounded for drawing on her sister. Ever since she has stayed away from live substrates and pursued a variety of media and styles but paper sculpture and collage illustrations have always been her favorite. Her style? Whimsical and funny. Children's Art and books; for her, what else is there?

There is nothing I can't make or create.
