Lisa Konkol – Writer and Illustrator
My name is Lisa Konkol and I’m a writer and illustrator. Picture books combine my love of children, storytelling, art, and writing. It’s the perfect challenge to develop an engaging story-line, find the perfect words, and create illustrations with unique perspectives and colors. I’m passionate about giving children books that make them laugh and encourage them to develop a love of reading!
My passion for writing and art began at an early age. I wrote my first picture book at age eight and I’ve always been busy drawing and painting. As a young adult I was encouraged to go to business school. I received my business degree. I’ve spent over twenty-five years as a technical writer.
As an artist, I was fortunate to be designated a Master Artist by the American Juried Art Salon. My paintings have been in galleries, and I’ve received commissions. However, in the past five years I’ve focused my time on the art of creating picture books. This past month I was awarded an honorable mention in the Kidlit411 banner contest. My banner and interview will be featured on their website in May 2021.
I’m married, have three grown children, and am “Nana” to my two young grandchildren. They are my joy and inspiration.
