About me

 

Hello! I’m Ellen Li and I’m an illustrator and graphic designer based in London. In my work I aim to take an alternative approach to familiar subject matters sometimes focusing on capturing a specific mood. I have an interest in social matters and passion for sustainable living which are subjects that sometimes creep into my work. I studied at the London College of Communication where I also under took a year in industry, working for The Times, Selfridges, Makerie studio and Thomas.Matthews. Currently collaborating on an illustrated book about autism for young people. I’m open for commissions and collaborative projects.
