About me

Toni Li (also known by her Chinese name, Siu li) is a UK based artist and illustrator who uses a mixture of traditional and digital mediums to create her work.

She enjoys incorporating her interests in video games, music, fantasy, horror & graphic novels , and character design into her work.
What links all of her interests together are the characters contained within the stories, characters that you the reader can relate to.

Within her picture books, she enjoys exploring the relationships between the characters, as well as finding ways to foster a greater understanding between parents and children reading them.

"This is how we get through the Day" is a story that about the different approaches parents and children have towards the same situation. It explores where miscommunication might occur in day to day life and does so in a humorous way. The intended aim being to ease the frustrations between both parties when these miscommunications arise.
