Josée Bisaillon - Illustrator

As a young girl, Josée loved drawing cats and houses. She really enjoyed school and always returned home full of stories to tell (and, of course, to draw!). She liked being in the classroom so much that she pursued her education all the way to university, where she studied graphic design. It was there that she fell in love with illustration.

Since that time, with scissors and brushes in hand, Josée has illustrated more than 30 picture books. She also illustrates for magazines and newspapers.

Josée lives just outside of Montreal with her family, their hairless cat and many characters she created.
