Jocelyn Kao is a freelance illustrator from Taiwan now based in Montréal, Québec. She studied illustration and animation in San Francisco, and then worked as a concept artist for seven years. After a long period of work in animation and games, she decided to go to Paris and study fashion design. A year in Paris inspired her own life and creative work. She started to develop her illustration and had her first picture book “CHACHA À PARIS” published in France in 2015.
Her work includes editorial illustration, illustration for fashion brands and magazines, book covers, children’s illustrations, and picture books. Her inspiration comes from everyday life, travel, and people around her. Her art style is chic and edgy, often executed with bold color combinations and beautiful details.
Jocelyn adores cats, vintage fashion and style, and loves to incorporate those subjects into her work. She enjoys visiting art museums and reading literature
