Nice to meet you! I’m Cherry.
I am a freelance illustrator focusing on children’s book publishing. I studied Illustration at ArtCenter College of Design, where I found my love of storytelling through expressive characters. My Chinese culture and self-awareness studies are big inspirations for my work and essential parts of my life! Besides creating art, I love to play Chinese chess, enjoy writing snail mail to loved ones, and find joy in simple things.
