Bio: I'm an illustrator and educator based in Malaysia. I enjoy making pictures that evoke a sense of wonder and curiosity, believing that art matters, stories matter, and the two can bring people together. Having a multidisciplinary foundation in science, education, and visual communication, I'm able to create images that are informed by different ways of seeing the world. I've done editorial illustration, book covers, posters, graphic recording, and on-site sketches.
