Illustrator. Designer. Storyteller.

Angelie Yap was born and raised in Livingston, New Jersey on Taylor ham and cheese sandwiches. Her childhood was consumed with library visits and crayon doodles, so it was a no-brainer when she went off to receive a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration with concentrations in Graphic Design and Book Arts from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2019. She now spends (a little) less time with crayons and is currently a Design Assistant at Little, Brown Books for Young Readers and a Freelance Illustrator.

Yap loves exploring new ways of making images and works with a wide range of traditional and digital media. Her work has been recognized by the Society of Illustrators.
