Hello! I am a Taiwanese American illustrator for children’s publications living in California, and an active member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators (SCBWI).
My artwork combines painterly textures with detailed lines to bring life and movement to characters and settings. In all my work, I aim to inspire a sense of fun, freedom, and hope.
Projects that excite me are picture books, graphic novels, and illustrated middle grade stories featuring themes like:
- Nature, environmental-friendliness, and animals (especially education and awareness)
- Intergenerational relationships
- Travel, adventure and friendship
- Emotional learning and diaspora experiences
Thank you very much for taking the time to learn more about me.
Please reach out to my agent – Tara Gonzalez – if you would like to work together on a book.
For publishing inquiries please contact Tara Gonzalez at the Erin Murphy Literary Agency: firstname.lastname@example.org

(PLEASE NOTE: I am only accepting traditional publishing book projects at this time.)
