Sichen Grace Chen is an illustrator and painter based in Vancouver.
Symbolized by the pairing of her Chinese name, Si Chen (思辰), and her English name, Grace, Chen explores the complex relationships between seemingly disparate ideas, objects, and identities, hoping to create space for new perspectives and connections. She is captivated by in-between moments, nature, femininity, colourful eeriness, and the impossible.
She is open to commissions and creative collaborations.
