Janice Liu is a children's comic artist who teaches art & comics. Her 2019 graphic novel, Chicken Soup & Goji Berries 中药鸡汤, was a 2020 Excellence in Graphic Literature Award finalist, and a Gene Day Award nominee.

Janice's digital illustrations simulate the look of real ink and watercolour, and combine commercial cartooning with the look of Chinese ink painting. Her work is often about exploring culture, belonging, and the unknown through the supernatural and fantastical.

Janice is the owner of the art school Young Artists’ Place. She also teaches workshops and art programs for children across the Vancouver area.
