Hello! My name is China, I'm an illustrator specializing in Linocut art 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 am currently looking for Illustration work in Surface Pattern design for the apparel market. I would really like to work for Anthropology, Billabong or Patagonia
When I am not designing I enjoy Hiking, bicycling in parks and soaking up the sun with a good book.
"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!"
