Hello! It's nice to meet you. I'm Joanna, a concept artist and illustrator studying Interactive Media and Game Design (BA) and minoring in East Asian Languages and Culture at the University of Southern California. I love games dearly and look forward to crafting and fine-tuning interactive experiences every day.


Outside of art, I play three instruments (violin, viola, piano) and was previously a dancer and coordinator for USC Freshman Dance Off (2017, 2018). On my free weekends, I like to cosplay and translate Japanese manga and light novels for fun.

Currently: Contract Illustrator - Banana Bird Studios, LLC.
