About

 
 

Wenjia is a freelance illustrator graduated from MICA (Maryland Institute College of Art) in 2017. She was born in southeast China, and came to the US for high school when she was 15. She loves all kinds of animals, and lives with a cat in Manhattan, New York. 

She works digitally with a wacom tablet, and always wants to explore ways to bring organic touches to digital images. Printmaking has always been an influence of her works.
