Yunroo is an illustrator specialising in children’s book. Since graduating from Middlesex University London in 2015, Yunroo has worked with clients worldwide. Her most current project includes being invited to design the illustrations on a 16m x3m roller blind, which was awarded the “Biggest Hand-Painted Motorised Roller Blind” by the Malaysia Book of Records.
Her colourful and humorous illustrations have proved popular with corporations and social organisations. This resulted in her illustrated children’s book “Grandma and the Things That Stay the Same” being shortlisted as Best Children’s Book Award for both Singapore Book Awards 2017 and Asian Festival of Children’s Content (AFCC) 2017.
Trained in Design Communication, Yunroo believes that it is important to convey key messages through art. She focuses on simultaneously communicating these messages through her works, yet effectively sharing a larger amount of information hidden within the fun and energetic worlds of her illustrations.
Once a resident in Singapore and London, Yunroo now lives and works out of a small studio apartment in Kuala Lumpur and teaches in a local art college.
