YiJie Chen (陳依婕) is an award winning freelance illustrator from Taiwan. Her alias is "EJ" - a simple way to pronounce and remember her name. She graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in Scotland, with a MFA in Illustration. Her works express an evocative tone of distinctive surrealism with delicate textures of line and colour. She enjoys making images with a juxtaposition of tranquility and richness, rationality and emotion.
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.
Feel free to contact her by dropping with one optional language out of four!
