“How can one person possess so much talent?” Partly genetics, but mostly hard work and passion! L.E. Horn has been writing and creating since she was a young girl. Her adult life evolved like many of ours—she graduated from university, got married, landed a regular job . . . all the while developing her creative side. Her passion finally overtook her, and now she is a full-time writer and artist.
L.E Horn is a multimedia artist as well as an author. This talent has enabled her to draw her characters in order to bring them to life on the pages of her books. “Drawing them before writing about them allows me to see how they would move, express themselves, and interact with each other and the different beings they encounter.” She often works with Shetland sheep fiber, which has been the inspiration for the beautiful handmade felts that she used for the canvases of her book covers. Her ideas tend to flow with the natural colors and textures, lending a unique vision to the finished pieces. Whether she uses fiber or more traditional media, she has a particular passion for creating art that reflects the connection between people and the earth—in particular between people and animals, whether they be real or mythical in nature.
