Jacqueline Tam  is an illustrator from Hong Kong, currently residing in Harlem, New York with two cats and a husband. She earned her MFA  from the School of Visual Arts, Illustration as Visual Essay program and has worked on a variety of editorial and commercial projects, including the New York Times and Pandora Jewelry. Her illustrations are expressive and experimental, and seek to capture a world full of mystery and wonder. 

Her days reserved for not-drawing consist of wandering: the Met for fresh inspiration and the five boroughs for freshly baked loaves of sourdough.
