Joan Charles

Joan is a artist, an illustrator, a graphic designer, a reader, a writer, and a day dreamer. She loves browsing in old bookstores, museums, art galleries, junktique stores and listening to (almost) all kinds of music.

In addition to illustrating the award-winning Lexicon novels for middle grade readers, Joan has created art for children's books and magazines, galleries, exhibitions, and for private collectors.
