My name is Hui Li. I am an author and illustrator of children's picture books. I studied at the University of Chicago. Solving problems and creating meanings with pencils and brushes is my daily ritual. I have been working with various publishers and magazines. Having traveled many places around the world, Hui now calls North Jersey her home. 

If you want to work with me or simply say hello, I'd be happy to read your email:  shululu.lee@gmail.com 

For book-related inquiries, please contact my agent Anna Olswanger at the Olswanger Literary.
