Kathy Phan is a pet portrait and illustration artist based in Austin, Texas. She enjoys the use of color to bring out the character, dimension, and texture of her animal subjects. With a background in marketing and Asian American studies, Kathy paints Asian food that is popularized in the US as a result of immigration and the Asian diaspora. Her kathyphantastic products include watercolor pet portraits, pet portraits on ceramics, paper goods, stickers, and magnets.
A daughter of refugees, Kathy Phan explores identity as an Asian American Texan. Kathy's watercolor paintings reflect a combination of Texas pride and a community that is under-represented in the arts. Kathy also paints pet portraits because dogs are great.
