Lily Williams is an illustrator, author, and storyteller who seeks to inspire change through education. Her work covers many topics, from the trophic cascade in the award-winning animated documentary short film FINconceivable and picture book If Sharks Disappeared (Roaring Brook Press, 2017), to menstruation in the webcomic The Mean Magenta. Lily believes in the power of making information fun, educational, and accessible for all audiences.
Lily grew up in Northern California where she graduated with high distinction from California College of the Arts with a B.F.A. in Animation. She spent time working in feature film animation in Los Angeles before diving into freelance full time.
When she isn’t creating, Lily can be found dreaming about the smell of cold winter air, listening for the sound of airplanes on a rainy day, playing with her rescue rabbits (Owen and Oliver), and perfecting her waffle recipe.
She lives in Oakland, California.
