I am an illustrator and an author of books, I have written a piece for The Guardian around unschooling. My children learn at home and are self directed learners, we travel as much as we can. I juggles my time between being with the kids and working on new books and projects.
I trained as an actress at The Guildhall School of Music and Drama and wrote The South African Illustrated Cookbook, The Lovely Book for Wonderful Women and I also illustrated a kid's book by M.J. Amani called 'Excuse Me, I'm Trying to Read' and 'I am Me, You, Us and We' by Caroline Trowbridge. I recently co authored with Anthony 'Jump', Fall, Fly - from schooling, to homeschooling, to unschooling' my art work can be seen at http://lehlaeldridge.wix.com/lehla- and I blog about unschooling at www.unschoolingthekids.com
