Meet Lili

Lili Chin is an artist well known for her globally popular dog art,  while her work also includes cats and other species. Since 2008, she has been providing custom illustration and a catalog of art products for sale. 


Lili Chin's dog behavior infographics have become a popular tool for dog training professionals, veterinarians, behaviorists, and welfare groups who advocate for humane animal training methods.


A partial list of prominent behaviorists, authors, and organizations that have used her art include the late Dr. Sophia Yin, Fear Free Pets, RSPCA, the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants (IAABC), and International Cat Care.


Her first book - Doggie Language: A Dog Lover's Guide to Understanding Your Best Friend - was published by Summersdale (Hachette) in October 2020, has been translated to multiple languages and has won two DWAA awards. 


Her newest book, Kitty Language: An Illustrated Guide To Understanding Your Cat is available now, published by Ten Speed Press (Penguin Random House) in June 2023.

She is currently working on a gift book of illustrated dog breeds, which will be published by Ten Speed Press in Spring 2025. 


Lili Chin is Malaysia-born, spent most of her youth in Sydney, Australia and currently lives in Los Angeles with a writer-husband, and two rescued and bonded cats - Mambo and Shimmy. She still misses her rescued, blue-eyed boston terrier, Boogie (2004 - 10/20/2020) and currently doesn't live with a dog. In her spare time, she loves listening to podcasts and playing board games.

Lili Chin is represented by Lilly Ghahremani at Full Circle Literary.
