Overview

I am a children Illustrator. I gained a lot of inspirations for my illustrations from volunteering with seniors, families and children. I use Procreate on iPad Pro when on the move which very often, Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign. My style of Illustrations is quint, quirky and vibrant with key emphasis on bringing multiculturalism and inclusivity. I enjoy the texture of coloured pencil as it brings out the childhood in all of us.

My recent picture book illustrations is to represent ‘Single mother by choice’ A rare topic seen in children publication. Written by an excellent author, Ginny Ellsworth and illustrated by me. With only 20 or so book written for children with single mother by choice in the market, I felt the need to add another voice to them. This project emphasise my passion in working with self-published author who felt the need to be heard and publishers who are passionate in breaking barrier.
