Paddy Donnelly is an Irish author & illustrator living in Belgium. He grew up on the north coast of Ireland, surrounded by mythical stories of giants, magical creatures, and shape-shifting animals – all set in a stunning landscape from another time. All of this prompted his love for nature, animals, the sea, and storytelling.
He creates his illustrations digitally but loves working with a textured, painterly approach. The Vanishing Lake is his debut author illustrated picture book, based on a real lake close to his childhood home in Ireland.
He wishes Pluto was still a planet. Visit Paddy online at http://lefft.com/
