Clara Wei Fu is an illustrator born in Taiwan and currently based in London. She completed an MA in Sequential Design/Illustration from University of Brighton in 2015.
She looks for inspirations from everyday life. She likes observing people in the big, busy city, but also spends time taking a walk in the parks and enjoying the moment.
Her picture book Grandpa’s Fantastic Garden is a little girl’s imaginative journey into a beautiful and peaceful garden where she feels safe and calm. It illustrates a joyful and creative world with the aim of exploring the theme of mindfulness.
She is working on her new picture book, I Miss You, depicting the warm and nostalgic Taiwanese streets and traditional markets, which are inspired by her childhood memories.
She is available for commissions and collaborations.
