Illustrator Élisabeth Eudes-Pascal from Montreal visited W.L. McLeod elementary students from April 18 to 20 and shared some of her illustrations with them.

Elisabeth said, “I’ve been illustrating books for 25 years. I started illustrating when I was 35 years old but I worked as an artist who paints before that. I like drawing and I like that my pictures serve a purpose. They communicate with children that I don’t even know, to share what I love to do. I get my creative ideas from the text that an author gives me; sometimes the author will tell me what he wants done, and sometimes I get to decide. I’ve illustrated for authors in the U.S.A., the United Kingdom and Canada.”
