From a young age, Ellen Shi was often found with her nose in between the pages a book. She was raised in the suburbs of New Jersey and spent many weekends at the library.

Ellen ShiShe went on to get her BFA in Illustration from RISD hoping to make the world a bit brighter of a place. She thinks children’s books are her calling since the excitement of slapping down a color and the response when sharing illustration makes her feel like she’s on top of the world. Ellen has always admired a variety of artists, but is primarily inspired by life, nature, and color.

When not working on her art, you can find her listening to podcasts, marathon-watching movies, or with her nose in between the pages of a book.
