Kaley McKean is an illustrator based in Toronto. She received her BDes in Illustration from OCAD U in 2012, and since then has been working in the realms of editorial illustration, children’s publishing, and product design. Her first illustrated children’s book, “Howl Like a Wolf” by Kathleen Yale, was published in spring 2018 by Storey Publishing.

Her work features bright, minimal colour palettes and hand-made textures. She is inspired by medieval bestiaries, folklore, and the natural world. She will happily draw you any animal.

Kaley lives in the top two stories of a Victorian home on Toronto’s west end with a small menagerie that includes a cat, a snake, a tree frog, and a husband (who is also an illustrator) named Nolan Pelletier.
