Kelly Zou

Hi! I am an illustrator based in the UK and graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2021 with distinction. I am the author of the comic book - "Micro Drama" and the illustrator of the children's book - “The Lost Flower Children” by Janet Taylor Lisle published in China.

I got my undergraduate degree in Information Management&System and earned a master's degree in Management Science and Engineering. After six years of working in the IT industry, I decided to make a change and came to Scotland to pursue what I truly love.
