London-based Animation Filmmaker & Illustrator

Fuelled by a lifelong passion for art and storytelling, Ivyy embarked on her creative journey that spanned from years of art schools in Taiwan to the vibrant streets of London, where she first ventured as an exchange student before graduating with a BA in Illustration Animation at Kingston School of Art.

Using 2D visuals as a language, Ivyy’s work captivates audiences with its unique blend of storytelling and symbolism. Drawing inspiration from her life experiences, she weaves intricate narratives through emotive colours and everyday objects, particularly Chairs.

Over the past years, Ivyy has collaborated with clients including Meta, Adobe, NHS, Greenpeace, WaterAid, Opéra National de Paris and the Wellcome Trust, amongst others. Her self-initiated film isle of Chair has been selected by numerous festivals, winning the Animasian award at the Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival 2020. Her animated documentary Learning Disabilities in Primary Care secured the Best Animated Documentaries award at the London International Animation Festival 2022.

When she is not cooking up her next personal short, Ivyy works as a freelance commercial Animation Director at Passion Pictures.
