About

Song Kang is a Korean-American freelance illustrator based in Atlanta, Georgia. Through her interests in organic forms and textures found in nature, Kang creates intricately rendered environments. Her drawings glorify the mundane, weaving commonplace flora - grass, mushrooms, leaves- into fantastical worlds where the viewer is encouraged to explore deeper within the subtleties.
