Hi, I'm Fan. I am an illustrator and a painter based in China. I make narrative paintings that capture quiet, sensitive moments within nature. My work explores themes of innocence, the usual array of emotional states, love and romance, something between fantasy and reality.

Growing up and spent 8 years of my life competing swimming in the municipal team, water has become a prominent motif for me. I love to work with gouache, watercolor, and colored pencil.

I'm interested in projects revolving around the girl gaze that suggests a depth of emotions and creates a mutual connection.

Feature: It's Nice That
Clients: New York Times, Narratively, IFLA, Youth magazine
