Lionel King is a retired scientist and senior executive who began his art practice while on a posting in Paris in 2010. In the perfect city for drawing, he developed a keen interest in sketching the beautiful buildings of the City of Light. With a heavy work-related travel schedule, Lionel soon found himself sketching in airports, restaurants and parks around the world as a creative counterpoint to his demanding day job.
On returning to his hometown of Sydney, Lionel has continued to pursue his interest in art and is an enthusiastic watercolourist and active Urban Sketcher. When travelling, Lionel seeks out local Urban Sketchers groups and draws and paints in cities throughout Asia, Europe and America. With the encouragement, inspiration and, occasionally, tuition of this passionate and welcoming group of like-minded artists, he has continued to develop his interest and skills with pen, ink and wash.
The Mice Down Under is Lionel's second children's book with Donna Gibbs. He lives in Sydney, Australia with his wife, Judy.
