Freda Chiu is a freelance illustrator, artist and graphic designer currently based in Sydney. Her biggest influences include 80's B-grade horror, underground cultures, indie comics and children's picture books. Her favourite medium is the humble mechanical pencil for the subtle details it can achieve, and she lives for the story-telling aspect of drawing.
Freda graduated with Honours (First Class) in a combined Bachelor of Design in Visual Communication and a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies majoring in Japanese at the University of Technology Sydney in May 2014. She currently works across a range of applications including book and editorial illustration, branding and packaging.
When Freda isn't scribbling away to meet deadlines, she enjoys reading comics, news and books of all sorts to find inspiration. She also derives great pleasure from watching horror movies, 80's and 90's Hong Kong action comedies starring her childhood heroes, Jackie Chan and Chow Yun Fat, and hunting the streets for good ramen. She has an extensive children's picture book collection and a dog named Tubby who keeps her feet warm while she works.
