About me
I’m a graphic designer – aka woolypear – with a penchant for drawing. (I even created a doodle blog for kids: 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. twitter: @woolypear instagram: @woolypear facebook:

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.
