Yu Ting Cheng
Yu Ting was born and raised in Taiwan. As a child, her ‘daily adventures’ began at her great-grandfather’s private zoo, with three crocodiles, two peacocks, and many dogs. These adventures had a huge impact on her personality and art style. Yu earned a B.C. in Statistics from NCCU in Taiwan, but never forgot her dream of becoming an illustrator. During college she learned traditional watercolor and taught herself digital drawing online. Yu earned an MFA in Computer Art form the School of Visual Art in New York in 2016, and interned at Bill Plymptom Studios as an animation coloring artist. She volunteers at an art museum on weekends and attends museum courses in her spare time. Yu loves animals, yoga, and travel. She has been a vegetarian for over a decade and believes everyone has their own way to make the world a better place. She hopes to express happiness, wishes, and influence others through her illustrations.
