Hello! My name is China, I'm an illustrator specializing  in the surface pattern design industry. I graduated from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco where I earned my BFA in Illustration. While studying my focus was Children's Book illustration with Watercolor and Cut paper collage. After graduating I wrote and Self-published my very own children's book. I have worked for clients on a freelance basis creating graphics for Ad campaigns, branding and    T-shirt Designs. After taking a few classes in Printmaking at City College of San Francisco, I discovered my love for Linocut Art and began pursuing this path by selling my original works and exhibiting in galleries.
I love to collaborate with companies in the  Paper goods Industry, specifically creating art for Stationery, Journals and Notebooks. 
When I am not designing I enjoy Hiking, bicycling in parks and soaking up the sun with a  book.
If your interested in working together you can message me below!
Thank you!
"China was part of Junior Wildlife Rangers very first cohort of design and illustration interns. Working with her was a pleasure, both from an illustration standpoint, and just as a person! Her exploratory work continues to influence the direction of our designs today."
Emi Fogg, Associate Director of Design at Junior Wildlife Ranger
"China is such a talented and hard-working artist. Her retro, linocut inspired vibe is very trend forward and gorgeous. You can't go wrong with China!"
