Hi, I’m Lillian

I am a self-taught illustrator based in Beijing. As a child, I was enthusiastic with art. And I was also good at math so that I chose financial management as my major in Central University of Finance and Economics. However, the enthusiasm of chasing art was burning and never extinguished. After working as a senior finance manager for more than ten years, I decided to change my career to art and learn to draw from scratch.

Interpreting briefs in a fun and unique way is a lifelong passion for me. I love travelling, cooking, music, science and dogs so that I can translate them to the creative things as a keen sense of my own.
