Brenda Chi was born in Los Angeles (SGV) and was raised by sitcoms and cartoons. She makes art that shines a light on Asian American stories and experiences. Her personal goal is to make work that can elevate all BIPOC, to empower and inspire others. She’s also a multidisciplinary artist, with a background in web comics as an Associate Art Director, worked in animation, educational illustration, and apparel consumer products. 
She also a small business owner, running her own art shop, selling work about the AAPI experience! On her spare time, she hangs out with her  two one-eyed cats, Compton and Lychee, in a home filled with plants. You'll often find her with green hair, sipping Horchata or a Taro Milk Tea!
