Copy of About the artist

Hello! My name is Chanamon Ratanalert and I run this shop from a small studio in San Francisco, CA. With my shop, I hope to spread cheer and color to the world through my art. In our predominantly digital world, I love creating tangible products that connect others––to encourage, celebrate, spread love, or simply make someone smile! I also strive to spread awareness to mental health, Asian American diaspora, and what it's like to run a small art business.

When I began this shop in 2017, it was just a hobby to fuel my creative side outside of my 9-to-5 tech job. Eventually, I realized how much joy creating these illustrations and products gave me and how I longed to be an artist full-time. Because my immigrant parents raised me to strive for prestige and stability, it took me years to convince myself to abandon the career I had built. Eventually, it became impossible to ignore that I was miserable with that path and should strive for happiness and things I'm passionate about instead.

At the end of 2020, I quit the corporate life to pursue my dream of being an illustrator full-time and making art for people like you! It's a lot of work and not often easy, but I am much more fulfilled and happy with my life now.
