I am Cherie, and I love painting, drawing and sewing. I studied Art in Canada where I received a Bachelor's degree in Fine Art. Then I came to Hong Kong and became an English teacher. I also did some more studying and received a Masters degree in Education.

I am really lucky that I have plenty of opportunity to combine my interests in art and teaching. I have illustrated lots of story books which can be seen for free at teachakidinafrica.com.

I really enjoyed illustrating the pictures for Where's the Word? because I LOVE  drawing cats! Also, I have known Sophie since before she was born, so of course I enjoyed drawing Sophie and her brother Tom as well.
