Jessie Lin is an award-winning illustrator from China. She studied business in college. After several years of work in purchasing, she decided to change her career to art because of her passion for it since little. Later she pursued her MFA in Illustration at Savannah College of Art and Design. Now she works in various artistic fields including editorial, advertising, surface design, children's books, book covers, & etc.. She works with both traditional and digital media. She regards illustration as an efficient, insightful, and beautiful way of communication. She also does some translating/interpreting and photography commissions occasionally. 

​In her spare time, Jessie loves to cook, travel, and read. She plays a little bit Ukulele. And she is a cat lover!
