I’m a graphic designer – aka woolypear – with a penchant for drawing. (I even created a doodle blog for kids: kidcandoodle.com) I'm known for : elegant typography, keen colour sense, and exceptional layout skills. My favourite projects include packaging non-fiction lifestyle titles for publishers such as Penguin | Randomhouse and Harper Collins, but I’ve also produced marketing campaigns for Estée Lauder, Bloomingdale’s, Morgan Stanley, and others. I’ve lived on four continents : Asia, North America, Australia, and now UK/Europe. http://lana-le.com twitter: @woolypear instagram: @woolypear facebook: http://www.facebook.com/woolypear
- ACE Hotel, NY art commissionJou-Yie Chou at ACE Hotel commissioned me to create murals for rooms 622 and 728 for their New York location. Mr Chou had seen my sequential how-to illustrations in craft books such as Joelle Hoverson’s Last-Minute Knitted Gifts, or Lily Chin’s Crochet Tips & Tricks and thought they’d add a warm, interactive quality to the decor of the rooms.
- Lady Garden painting“Lady Garden” Art created especially for the Vagina Museum’s “Open Soon” silent auction fundraiser; posters announcing the event were seen around London neighbourhoods. Remarkably, I had the lowest Instagram following of any of the artists participating, yet my painting sold for the third highest amount.

I was the first person in my family to graduate from college. I studied illustration and graphic design whilst working in retail to pay for my education.
