Hi! My name is Qing Zhuang ("ching juang").
For as long as I can remember, I have been a dreamer and lover of art and stories. I am deeply moved by life and worlds both mundane and fantastic.
Today, I work to hone and expand my work as a children's book illustrator and elementary educator in New York City. I am inspired by art from around the world and have a soft spot for folk dolls and puppets.
I earned a B.F.A. in Illustration from Maryland Institute College of Art and a Master of Art in Teaching from School of Visual Arts, New York.
I have been to China, Japan, Mexico and France and hope to explore more of our beautiful world.
Thanks for visiting, I hope you enjoy my work!
