About Chris Hong

There is an old-fashioned, storybook feel to Chris Hong’s watercolor and gouache illustrations that’s as refreshing as her honesty about the process of creating them. After building an Instagram following that’s 75K+ strong, she launched her Chris Hong Art channel on YouTube so she could give even more insight into the life and work of an independent illustrator. Her humble personality shines through on both platforms, where fans can watch her hands at work, from the first sketches of a piece to its finishing touches of paint. Whether it’s an elfin girl cuddling up inside a tiny mushroom house or a self portrait for a “Meet the Artist meme,” Chris puts a tremendous amount of heart into her art.
