Hi, I am Kaitlin, a curator, designer and illustrator in Hong Kong. I work on exhibitions, texts, and images. My work has appeared in daikon* zine and The Asian American Writer’s Workshop’s Transpacific Literary Portfolio. I have designed collateral for Asia Art Archive in America, Asia Society Hong Kong Center, and The Vera List Center for Art and Politics. I contribute regular illustrations to Art Agency, Partners / Sotheby’s In Other Words newsletter, and have also created a promotional illustration for Alexander Chee's forthcoming book of personal essays. I write about art at Still/Loud. Please be in touch if you'd like to make something together.
