Yilin S.

illustrator/graphic designer

I am Yilin Shen ( you can call me Elaine) , a junior illustration student from RISD. I was born in Shanghai, China, and currently learning and living in Rhode Island, US. Visual works, like illustration, painting, graphic design, film making, are my passion. I love experimenting with media, shapes, and perspectives.My inspiration comes from the subtleties of my surroundings, my imagination, and my dreams. I have experience working in children's publication illustrations, media illustrations, and graphic design. I am available for short-term freelance projects and commission painting- feel free to contact me anytime if you have questions or would like to work with me.
