About Chia 

Chia (Chia Ying Lin) is an illustrator and a visual designer based in Taiwan. Her projects are usually inspired by Mother Nature and daily life inner reflections. She used to work in digital marketing, hospice care industry and advertising industry and then became a freelanced illustrator after graduating from Kingston University, London. Apart from commissioned works, she likes to make self-published zines or short story books. In 2023 she was shortlisted in Bologna Illustration Exhibition. When she’s not drawing, she loves hiking, coffee, and cuddle her cat Ume.

To put it in short, she is a spirit speaks by drawing and writing :-)
