Kela Wong is an Asian American illustrator from Seattle, Washington. She draws inspiration from her Chinese-Japanese American heritage and her love of corgis. Both themes run through her line of hand-illustrated greeting cards and stickers.
Kela decided to pursue creating art in order to prioritize filling her life with work she loves and moments that bring her joy. She delights in illustrating her own favorite foods and objects, and shares her art and greeting cards with others in the hopes that other people can find connection, beauty, or joy in her designs.
Kela grew up learning multiple languages and constantly exploring new cultures. She always loved how language had the ability to create bridges between cultures and people, and believes that art is also a powerful vehicle through which one can find meaningful connection to others.
You can find Kela’s work in the Wing Luke Marketplace and Kobo at Higo in Seattle’s International District.
