Davy Liu’s passion for his work was instilled in him from the very beginning. As a child, he loved to use pencil and pastel on paper to capture things he took visually. Davy’s family immigrated to the United States from Taiwan when he was 13 years old. He struggled through most of his academic years and tried to fit in the western culture. As he sought refuge in his natural artistic talent, Davy found comfort and won awards at the national level.
After graduating from Ringling School of Arts and Design in Florida, his artistic talent soon led him to work for Walt Disney Feature Animation on classic films such as Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Mulan, and The Lion King. He also worked for Warner Brothers on Space Jam and Quest of Camelot. In 1998, he worked for George Lucas at Industrial Light and Magic as art director and worked on Star Wars Episode I and Frankenstein. In 2000, he was nominated as the most distinctive illustrator and his illustration has graced the pages of Business Week, Time Magazine, Wall Street Journal and The Super Bowl.
Davy founded Kendu Films in 2004 and had since published the Invisible Tails series of picture books, namely The Giant Leaf, Fire Fish, Jordan’s Guest, The Royal Feast and Enchanted Tree.
