Esther specializes in Graphic Design, Print Layout and Visual Illustration.

Esther was born in Canada to an American father and Chinese mother. She grew up surrounded by her father's love for woodworking and her mother's Chinese calligraphy.

Esther has lived in three different provinces in China, and in four U.S. states (currently Illinois), which taught her at a young age to adapt to new environments with ease. Being a nomad her whole life meant constantly meeting new people and hearing stories about lives that were very different than her own.

She is fascinated with people and their innate desire to share their experiences with others, and at a young age was inspired to do the same. 

Esther is always looking for the next opportunity to share her worldview and design talents with. Let's collaborate!
