Coral Liu

My name is Coral and I am a freelance illustrator based in mainland China. I’ve had a major in illustration in Camberwell College of Arts during my undergraduate stage, and I appreciate to have the chance to specialize my knowledge and practice in children’s book illustration at the course here in CSA.

My interest in children’s book is mostly inspired by my travel experiences, especially those related to the nature. I’d like to explore my own language of expressing educational information in a warm or interesting tone, both visually and textually. Like in this project, I am talking about isolation and its resolution through the heart-warming interactions between the water girl and the water elephant.

I love experimenting with media, in the main project this time I try doing monotype with watercolor, pastels as well as photoshop, whereas I also enjoy working with color pencils, collage or risograph in my art creation.
