YiJie Chen (陳依婕) is an award winning freelance illustrator from Taiwan. Her clients include Bloomsbury Publishing UK.
Her alias is "EJ" - a simple way to pronounce her name. YiJie graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in Scotland, with a MFA in Illustration. Her style gathers an evocative tone of realism, manga linework, and surrealism together. She enjoys making images with a juxtaposition of tranquility and richness, rationality and emotion. The figures in her works often stay still at a gazed moment, which maximize the narration power through serenity.
Instead of digging in art education early, YiJie gained a bachelor degree of French Language. After several years of work, including marketing one of her unfavoured products- surveillance camera in a tech company; serving one of her favourite snacks- macha tea (and) ice-cream in a over 100-years-old specialty tea shop in Osaka Japan. She made the twist of her life in 2018 - went to Scotland to pursue art after she realized an illustrator with soul was the role she desired to fit in most.
As a late bloomer with open mind, her works suit wide range of topics advantageously, and show capability in diverse application such as editorial illustration, commercial illustration, film poster and so on.
