My name is Lily and I am an illustrator, 2D animator, designer, memory hoarder, and fox lover, seeking to create impact by focusing on the value of a great story.
Growing up in different countries, I embraced the importance of traditions and family in China, became deeply inspired by the value of one's culture in New Zealand, understood more about my community by volunteering in Canada, and found my voice through social impact and leadership experiences in Los Angeles.
Motion design holds immense potential to create memorable experiences for people beyond screens, and I always look forward to meeting individuals who share a never-ending desire to explore and bring happiness to people around them.
One pixel at a time.
Currently based in Auckland, New Zealand.
Some incredible people I have worked with globally include COLOR, Redboat,
The Collective Agency, Imaginary Forces, verynice, Zoomslide, Feminist AI,
Cumulus, and Microsoft.
In my free time, I am also a creative/board member at CMD+Y Collective, a non-profit started by a group of friends who wanted to use their creative power to make the world a better place.
Let's collaborate together!
