My name is Lilly Taing, a Teochew (Chinese)-Cambodian-American artist and Pediatrics resident born and raised in Los Angeles and currently based in Seattle.


When I'm not in the hospital or in clinic, I like playing with colors and shapes, and capturing the invisible, mundane moments in our lives, and all the feelings contained within them, in extraordinary ways. I want to create a world through my art and my medical care for children to be able to dream and to use them as tools for advocacy and for helping marginalized voices be heard. 

I am interested in children's/MG/YA publishing, visual development, comics, and illustration. I am always looking for new creative opportunities to tell stories that inspire curiosity, wonder, and reflection for people of all ages.

If you want to work together or chat, please feel free to contact me at

Joi sia (thank you) for stopping by and I hope you have a nice, colorful day.
