About

I am a Taiwan-based visual storyteller, a picturebook author and illustrator, an art educator for both adults and children, and a freelance children’s book editor.

I love picturebooks, colours, animals, the natural world, and stories. I am especially interested in the possibilities of picturebooks. My illustrations are childlike, metaphorical, and honest. When drawing, I express my feelings directly through brushstrokes onto the paper.

As a creator, I aim to create profound stories to inspire people to see the beauty and harmony in life.
