Michelle Nguyen is a Vietnamese-American artist who left her hometown of Orange Country and ventured off up north. She is currently attending San Francisco State University, pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree, with an emphasis on drawing and painting. Although she came up to San Francisco as a Bio chemistry major and had intended to become a pharmacist, she quickly changed her path to art because she was always been passionate about the subject.
She is currently working with the Golden Gate National Park Services as an intern for Social Media and Accessibility. Some of her roles include revamping the current mascot, Benny the Bison, into a more children- friendly cartoon, as well as bringing in social media, such as Facebook.
After graduating from San Francisco State, she hopes to achieve her dreams of becoming graphic designer or character designer for the children’s’ entertainment or gaming industries. Video games and cartoons were her childhood influences that help shaped her career path, and she hopes to help others find their own path by sharing her works of art with the world.
