Bio
Charlene Chua has illustrated many things over the years for kids of all ages. Her illustration work has won several awards, while books she has illustrated have been nominated for the Shining Willow Award, Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Awards, and Kirkus Best Middle-Grade books.

Charlene is also working on her author/illustrator debut, Hug?, which will be published by Kids Can Press in 2020.

Charlene was born and grew up in Singapore, and moved to Canada in 2007. She started work in 1998 as a web designer, and went on to become a senior designer, web producer and interactive project manager. However, what she really wanted to do was draw pictures all day. In 2003, she decided to give it a go, and after a few years, she became a full-time illustrator.

When she is not making art, she enjoys cooking, reading, and playing with her cats. She now lives with her husband (and cats!) in Hamilton, Ontario.

She is represented by Tracy Marchini at BookEnds Literary for all book projects.
