Lichia is an urban designer turned self-taught artist based in Toronto, Canada. Born in Taipei and nomadic by nature, she has lived and worked in Canada, Japan, United States, Taiwan and China. In 2013, she returned to Toronto and established her own practice, where she combines her passion for urban design, architecture, illustration, hand-lettering, and graphic design to create honest and compelling visual work.
Lichia is the Founder and Creative Director of Gotamago, a stationery & gifts brand that specializes in paper goods featuring her watercolour illustrations. An avid urban sketcher and observer of the environment, most of Lichia's drawings are made on-location in a moleskine sketchbook with ink, watercolour and markers.
In between projects, Lichia is currently working on an illustrated personal memoir about her rediscovery of Taiwan, where she returned to from 2011-2012.
