Christina Chung is an illustrator based in Brooklyn, New York. Through a line and pattern-based style, she creates illustrations that are sensitive, delicate and infused with symbolism.
She spent her childhood blackberry-picking and pirouetting in the Pacific Northwest
of the United States, her summers in Taiwan and Hong Kong, and her angst-filled adolescent
years in the hot and sweaty melting-pot known
She has since left her island-city home of 7 years and graduated from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York with a BFA in Communications Design with a concentration in Illustration.
She likes cats, coffee, Earl Grey tea, making to-do lists, devouring books and the smell of lavender.
