PeiHsin Cho  /ˈpɛ ʃɪn ˌdʒɔ/ 

PeiHsin is a Taiwanese visual storyteller with a particular focus on illustration and animation, currently based in London.
Her work is narrative-based and revolves around sentimentalism and introspection. She combines traditional and digital mediums to depict a variety of inward feelings that attempt to transcribe subtle emotions into tangible and visually tactile images. Personal sentiments are always present in Pei’s atmospheric drawings, wrapped with rational narration to catalyse intimate subjective experiences and memory fragments. 
Her personal and commissioned works can be seen in many magazines, publications and international film festivals. 

Also, she is hopelessly addicted to cat and tea.
