Swanna Luo is a self-taught digital artist/illustrator based in Philadelphia. Born in New York in 1991, she migrated just slightly south to the city of brotherly love to pursue a career as a physician assistant. However, her heart lies with art, a passion she has carefully cultivated since her younger years. She obtained a taste of traditional art in middle and high school art classes, and started to teach herself digital painting in 2008. Despite a full time job as a medical provider, she spends her remaining time crafting illustrations and portraits, hoping to bring the viewer into her own fantastical world. While she is by no means a professional, she utilizes the same discipline and eye for perfection from her years in graduate school and the medical field into her work. She currently lives in Philadelphia with her husband and golden-haired cat.
