I'm a London based illustrator. Born in the UK to Hong Kong parents, I have an interest in social and cultural stories from around the world. I especially enjoy finding new ways of depicting human emotions and experiences.
I have a background in graphic design and bring a sensitive approach to storytelling using a blend of watercolour, inks and digital tools.
A Girl Like Tilly was published in 2017 by Jessica Kingsley Publishers, it takes a compassionate look at the life of a young girl growing up with autism.
When I'm not at my desk you can find me finding new ways of keeping my sassy whippet Toby entertained.
