Born profoundly deaf and raised in Sunny Island, Singapore, Ziyue Chen (pronounced Zzz-yuair) is a graduate of Ringling College of Art and Design. Her life goal is to have an emotional connection with those who view her work.
Early in her career she worked as an animator on projects dedicated to children's art and creative thinking. Later on, Ziyue discovered her keen interest in storytelling through illustration, and with a scholarship and support from her loved ones, she took the opportunity to study illustration in the USA. Since then, she has worked on books and other illustration projects for children.
