Cornelia Li is a Chinese born illustrator currently based in Toronto, Canada. She is intrigued by narrative weaved into daily interaction between people and their surroundings and set out to capture the relationship by externalize the ideas and emotions into elements in her images.

When illustration deadlines are not keeping her at the desk, she enjoys reading and hunting for books to find inspiration. She also loves going to museums, watching movies and making paper crafts. When she is not find doing any of the above, she is probably saving her house from the destruction of her pet cockatoo, Charlie.

Represented in North America, UK, Australia and New Zealand by ARTISTIQUE.
