I am September’s banner illustrator for Kidlit411.
Here are a couple new free colouring sheets for you to download on my website. A little knight who isn’t very pleased and a scared queen or princess on top of her throne waiting for her cat to chase away the mouse. Know that nursery rhyme? Enjoy! And if you can do buy me a coffee … Continue reading Free Colouring Pages

An old drawing of mine revisited. We do love an empty box in our household. So many creative ideas to contemplate but we like sitting in them the most. #tbt #leilanabih #kidlitart #childrensbooks #ipadpro #ipadproart #illustrator #illustration #instaillustration #childrenillustrator #childrenillustration #childrenillustrations #childrenillustrationbook #childrenillustrators #kidlitillo #kidlitartist #kidlitart #kidlit #picturebook #picturebookart #picturebooks
It's time to send Seasons Greetings around the world and what better way than to try and get together Children from various continents? A little something I've been working on for the last few days. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year wherever you are. This will be my last post for 2017!
It's here and it's done! And I'm so pleased with the end result. It's taken me a year and a half to be able to see this book project through. But I'm delighted to announce that it is now available for purchase on amazon. I've received my proof copy yesterday and i love it. It … Continue reading Joy’s Sneakers
Because I do love to share my progress online with my fans, family and friends, I thought I’d drop in a line today to mention that I am today’s Featured Illustrator on Kathy Temean’s Blog, Writing and Illustrating.
It is such an honour and a privilege to be featured on such a specialist blog. I feel like I’ve crossed another milestone with this feature. I’ve been following her and her blog posts for more than three years now, and she has been a very valuable source of information for me to learn about the processes, the ins and outs of the children’s books industry, and to meet virtually other individuals with the same passion as mine.
I highly recommend anyone working in the children’s books industry to follow her blog and subscribe to her posts. You can thank me later !
Enough chitter chatter for today. Head on over to her blog and read my interview.
Leila’s illustrations combine hand drawn lines and digital elements. She loves drawing bunnies and cats, as well as little boys and girls. At the moment she is working on a few self initiated educational projects to benefit her two year old toddler and submitting picture book dummies to a variety of publishing houses. She has self published a couple of books and is currently working on another two. She has also been commissioned to design and create picture books as gifts for little children from their parents, aunts or friends.
Leila has a French baccalauréat in sciences, a Bachelors degree in chemistry with a thesis in organic chemistry, a Masters degree in international business and a certificate of achievement in illustrating children’s books from a London based school. She speaks several languages and have grown up and lived in around 10 countries across the world (so far).
Here is Leila discussing her process:
