About me

Hello, I’m Violet Paek.

I’m an illustrator living in Astoria, NY with my husband,Evan and my cat,Tan. I was born and raised in South Korea.I studied Fine Art and got my BA from KyungPook National University.

After graduation, I taught art to various groups of children and teens for more than seven years in Korea.In 2012, I decided to move to NYC to pursue my dream of being a professional illustrator.

Now I keep drawing and knocking on the doors of editors and publishers to make sure my work finds more audience.My wish is that after children read my book, they will meet a pretty -eyed tree or a talking flower or a smiling cloud in their dreams. 

Thank you for visiting my website.
