Rea Zhai was born and raised in China with a great passion for drawing, music and cats. After working as an interaction designer for several years, she finally decided to focus on illustration. Inspired by the people she has met, the places she’s travelled to, the songs she loves, and the time she has spent with her cats, she feels that drawing is the most direct way to express herself and to share her happiness and inspirations with the world.
When not working, Rea is also a bass player in a small blues band.
She currently lives in Beijing, China with her husband and their three cute cats, as well as with love, music, and art.
