My work was first published in the Hong Kong newspaper when I was two.
|"Fish", Age 2. |
First published work. Milestone!
Over the years, I continued to submit work to the newspaper. I get to draw AND receive presents from the newspaper? Bliss!
|"Children's Library", Age 5. |
I was a library fan since childhood.
|"Underwater Tunnel", Age 5. |
The idea that cars could travel in a tunnel below water fascinated me.
With both parents as art majors and educators, my sister and I enjoyed participating in art activities. This 4-panel comic was for a Hong Kong school competition. I won third place for the primary school category. My lovely sister won first place for the high school category!
|Civic Education Comic Competition, Age 10.|
The creative journey continued when I moved to Los Angeles at age 11. Here is a snapshot of my comic for the middle school's publication.
|Middle School's Publication "In Our Own Words", Age 13.|
And in college, I was an editorial and comic illustrator for the college newspaper.
|My comic column "The Leaf", Age 21.|
In late 2011, I decided to pursue my dream as a full-time author-illustrator. Today, I am very excited to announce that my first written and illustrated picture book, MY LITTLE SISTER AND ME, will be published by HarperCollins!
