張梓鈞  Tzu-Chun Chang

Chun is a Taiwanese illustrator with an MA in Children’s book illustration from Cambridge School of Art and a BA in motion picture from Taiwan University of Arts.

Her work is sensitive and tranquil, mainly focuses on relationships and socio-political issues. She enjoys playing with metaphors and leave space for people to interpret. She loves film, philosophy as well as nature and would love to do more book / editorial illustrations. Her aim is to capture the magic in the mundane and to tell stories about difficult subjects in an approachable way.
