GEMMA YU

Is a children's author and illustrator based in Manchester, UK.

I'm a mother to two wonderfully energetic children, Olivia and Joey. They have been my true inspiration and the driving force behind my art and writing. 

 

I travelled a lot in my 20s and lived in Switzerland working for a wonderful family as their au pair before moving to China where I worked at an international school. I had a number of roles at the school across the 9 years of working there. I began working as a teaching assistant before taking on the role as the school's Events Manager where I was able to learn and develop my design and marketing skills. In my last years at the school, I became an early years teacher and gained my Post Graduate Certificate in Education with the University of Sunderland. As a qualified Early Years educator with a psychology degree, I have a good understanding of child development and enjoy writing stories to help support children with their development and understanding. 

I love creating fun and bright designs, and my personal favourite thing to draw is dinosaurs.

 I enjoy good food and exploring the great outdoors with my family.
