Shirley has drawn most of her life, applying this skill in architecture, later in visual arts. Illustrating for children comes naturally, as she grew up a Disney, anime, and comic fan, and drew cartoons during her downtime. She’s late in joining, not knowing there was a picture book or kidlit centric industry until 2019, she's had a growth spurt after extending her abilities to graphic novel and digital drawing. Her main mediums are ink and watercolour, CAD, and extending to digital. Her illustrations are full of fun and delight with constant motion and static tension ready to bolt into action.
