Hello, my name is Tina. I am 25 years old and an artist and art editor. I was born in Wenzhou, China. I moved to the U.S when I was 7 years old. I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago. I went to college and studied liberal arts at Carleton college in Northfield minnesota. In college I majored in studio arts and took many religion and art history classes.

My interests include dancing, being outside, listening to music, reading, and making art.
