• My name is Qing Zhuang (pronounced “Ching Juong”). I am an children’s book illustrator born in China and raised in New York.

    I am fascinated by New York City, its living legacy of immigration and all the intimate stories to be discovered within it. At the undercurrent of everything I do is a desire to cultivate and protect sensitivity, sincerity and spirituality in the context of modern, city life.

    I am currently living in Central Harlem, where I teach art in an elementary school.
