Carmen Mok - Illustrator
Carmen Mok studied studio art at the University of Waterloo and craft design at Sheridan College. While working as a magazine graphic designer she had the opportunity to explore editorial illustration, which inspired her to change her creative path and become an illustrator.
Carmen's illustrations have been published in magazines across Canada and the U.S., as well as on greeting cards, stationery and children's home accessories. She now dedicates herself to children's book illustration. She has received several illustration awards, including the SCBWI Canada East People's Choice Award for Illustration in 2017 and the Exceptional Portfolio Award and the Storyteller Award in 2018.
Carmen has a deep passion for making children's books. When she is not working, she enjoys spending time in libraries and bookstores; she also likes hiking, knitting or meeting up with friends.
Carmen lives in St. Catharines, Ontario, with her husband and a cat.
