My name is Lily and I am an illustrator, 2D animator, designer, memory hoarder, and a fox lover. I seek 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.

Despite being a creature of habit, I often seek to put myself in unfamiliar territories to grow and learn. Designing for a social purpose has helped me discover my own identity, connecting resilience, collaboration, and empathy.


Currently based in Auckland, New Zealand.

Open to global remote work.
