I am a Japanese//Taiwanese-American illustrator and designer based in Minneapolis, MN.

I work for mission-driven organizations and individuals who have stories to tell. I want to research, collaborate, and conceptualize. I have created images and designs for local midwest powerhouses (Pollen Midwest, Springboard for the Arts), nationally recognized brands (3Mgives, the YMCA), grassroots orgs/causes (RadAzns, Minneapolis Renters Coalition) and more.

I enjoy working with people who love food, people who have a mission, and people who make things. In all of my work I focus on the stories of people of color and other marginalized people, bringing their experiences to the center.


I am the recipient of the 2018 Artist Neighborhood Partnership Grant, the Jerome Emerging Artist Tofte Lake Residency, and am celebrating my first publication, When Everything Was Everything, written by Saymoukda Duangphoxay Vongsay (Oct 2018).
