Circle, Lok Ling Yuen


Circle Yuen is a Hong Kong-born illustrator based in the UK. She finished her MA in Children’s Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art recently. Alongside her studies, she co-launched "Today is Friday: A Story of Living Apart, Time Together," a picture book series confronting gender-based violence and family restructuring in Asia. It has been selected in the longlisted project for the Unpublished Picturebooks Showcase 3.  


Her project "the hiding kite: a story of a family storm"  was longlisted for the Bologna Illustrators exhibition 2024.
