About the Author

Sylvia Liu

I create stuff, mostly for kids.

I'm inspired by oceans, aliens, bunnies, cephalopods, and more.
I made art growing up in Venezuela, took studio classes as an undergraduate, and continued to find creative outlets while working at my first career in environmental law. I was lucky enough to do what I loved, protecting the oceans at the U.S. Department of Justice and the non-profit group Oceana. Now I'm even luckier to be painting, writing and drawing for kids.

A MORNING WITH GRANDPA (2013 New Voices Award winner, Lee & Low Books, May 2016) , illustrated by Christina Forshay, is my debut picture book. In this story, Gong Gong teaches his granddaughter tai chi, while Mei Mei teaches her grandfather yoga. Although they have different attitudes and styles, they share their love with each other.
