Biography

My name is Victoria Vang and I am a Hmong American woman and artist. I have lived in Minnesota my entire life and hope to travel outside of the country.

Photoshop was my first love from the Adobe products at the age of 11 thanks to my brother. I have learned Illustrator and InDesign along the way while HTML/CSS coding on the side. I enjoy sharing my art in the form of artistic trading cards and because of that, have a bit of my work all over the world.

I graduated from the University of Minnesota Duluth in spring 2017 with a BFA in Graphic Design.

In 2019 I was part of design team for C.AIM Magazine, a magazine that promoted artists of color that released three issues.

Thank you!
