Hi, I’m Jiawen Mao, an illustrator enjoys creating picture books and pleasant illustrations. I have been working with various projects, such as children’s books, book covers, editorial illustrations, package design, and IP design. I am skilled in using both hand drawing (with watercolour, acrylic, gouache, toner, coloured pencil, and crayon) and digital tools (e.g. Photoshop and Procreate). I like to make animations (e.g. gif) as well. I find my inspiration from nature, my daily life and my cat Tororo.

I hold a BA design degree from China Academy of Art, and got the master degree of Child Culture Design at HDK (Academy of Design and Craft, University of Gothenburg). Now I am live in Gothenburg.

I have good time management in my working. I’m proud that I have never missed the deadlines from the cooperated clients so far. I am always willing to work with projects coming from new areas. Feel free to contact me if you have any ideas.
