Helen H. Wu
Helen was born and raised in Hefei, China. She enjoyed drawing and writing since she was seven but never thought to become a professional artist or writer. She came to the United States to study applied economics. Helen began her career in project management. To make beautiful marketing materials, Helen taught herself graphic design and soon discovered her true passion for art. Helen took the leap, dived into the picture book world, and never left since then. Currently she is a graphic designer, children’s book writer and illustrator living in Des Moines, Iowa, with her family.
