Kwan Shan Mei (an update)

In March last year, I wrote a post about Kwan Shan Mei, an illustrator who was very prolific, especially in locally published children's books and textbooks.

I was rather surprise to not find much information about her online or even at the library (except for a newspaper article featuring an interview with her). So, I left a note asking anyone who has information to comment.

The internet has a truly wonderful way of connecting people. Since then, I have found out a few other things and sadly, I was also told that she has recently passed away.

Today, I received a comment from her student who is in the midst of putting together a Facebook page in honour of her. Something I look forward to seeing.

Personally, I think it would be great to have an exhibition of her extensive collection of artwork.

Keep a look out for more updates.
