Arielle Li

I'm Arielle Li. I'm an illustrator based in Adelaide, South Australia. I was born in Taichung, Taiwan, although my family and I emigrated to Australia in 2010. Having recently graduated from university, I am now pursuing a career in children's book illustration. My work is dreamy and full of dramatic lighting inspired by paintings in the Romantic and Impressionist era. I create illustrations both traditionally with watercolours, as well as digitally. My favourite subject matters are animals, nature, and everything fun and magical. My aim as a visual storyteller is to capture the emotions and personality of the characters, stage the atmosphere of a picture story, and convey the mood of each scene. I am passionate about illustrating stories and I work tirelessly on each project, so that everything I create will get the full attention it deserves.

I am currently accepting freelance work, please contact me at if you are interested, and I would try to respond to you as soon as possible. Or if you'd like to stay updated on my work, feel free to connect with me on Instagram :)
