My illustration work has grown out of my regular drawing habit,

 

researching and planning new textile artworks. As I drew more and more children, and turned them into art quilts, I grew to enjoy the drawing process more and more. People would often mention that they would love to see a picture book with my illustrations. Interestingly, long before I took my dream of illustration seriously, I would turn to favourite children’s illustrators as a source of inspiration for my artworks. Illustrators like Shirley Hughes, Graeme Base, Freya Blackwood and Shaun Tan. (I can’t walk out of a good bookshop without a new picture book. So I’m thrilled that my first picture book will be published in 2019. I will share more details when I can. Stay tuned!
