Qing Zhuang was born in a coastal province in China, where her mother lovingly nicknamed her “Strange Sea Creature.” She moved to the United States at seven years old and grew up in New York City where she still resides. Qing specializes in watercolor illustrations but loves to experiment artistically all the time! She puts all her heart and a little humor in everything she does.
Qing received a B.F.A. in Illustration from Maryland Institute College of Art and a Master of Art in Teaching from School of Visual Arts. Her work has been recognized by SCBWI NJ and Society of Illustrators NY.
Her first book, HOW LONG IS FOREVER (written by Kelly Carey, CHARLESBRIDGE PUBLISHING), comes out in 2020.
