JENN LIV (刘洁颍, Jennifer Liu, She/They) is an award-winning Chinese Canadian-American illustrator and a full-time assistant professor at the University of Arizona, School of Art in the Illustration, Design and Animation program. She is represented in North America by RappIArt. Jenn is also the Society of Illustrators 66 Silver Medalist in the Advertising category.


Jenn was born in Buffalo, New York in 1990, and raised in Toronto, Ontario Canada for the majority of her life. In 2023, she relocated and is now based in Tucson, Arizona in the middle of the Sonoran Desert. 

In the past, Jenn has also taught 4th-year Illustration at Sheridan College as a sessional lecturer and at OCAD University as a teaching assistant for 3rd-year Professional Practice. In 2019, she served as a juror in the Society of Illustrators 62 Competition, judging and evaluating entries in the Editorial category.

Her personal research interests focus on investigating the intersections between gender studies, feminism, decolonization, and Asian diasporic identity. Jenn also has a keen interest in emerging technology, particularly in mixed reality, searching for new and innovative ways to expand upon her artistic practice through interdisciplinary methodologies.

Outside of work, Jenn is fond of J-RPGs, Asian hip-hop and

pop music, and anything currently trending within the nerd community.
