I am Freelance illustrator based in Oslo (Norway). My interests are in storytelling - writing and illustrating children’s books, and making comics.
I was educated as an interaction designer, and have been working in the world of software design for over 10 years - drawing boxes and arrows to make computer user interfaces, and figuring out how technology can be made simpler for people to use. I always loved drawing and stories. I drew comics as hobby on my spare time.
Becoming a mom made me switching career to full time illustrator. Currently, I am illustrating and writing my first picture book.
I am Chinese and I always introduce myself as Li Xin - my first name is Xin, which is a bit confusing for many people in western countries. I kept the Chinese tradition of placing family name in front of my first name, because it sounded right to me.
