I am a Windsor based award-winning freelance illustrator from Taiwan, a graduate of Kingston University London specialising in Illustration Animation.

I express emotions and communicate through painting / illustrating with colour traditionally and digitally. I have a painterly style and usually create mix (wet and dry) media work with layers of tangible texture. My digital work also retains the charm of traditional materials and textures.

With regards to the making of children's picture books, I am concerned with emotional education and emotional wellbeing. Though I am dealing with complex subjects, I am interested in using simple stories to address them.

I hope to create work that audiences can have positive emotions from.
