Hello! I’m Yuan, a Graphic Designer living in New York, where my work is easily inspired by both nature and urban living. I love to work with various medium including watercolors, and pen & ink.

Before I discovered the world of surface pattern design I worked as a web and graphic designer in the retail industry.  Since then I have created a line of handmade stationery and greeting cards, Lemon Drop Papers, Inc., featuring hand crafted tiny envelopes and my signature illustrations. My paper products are being carried in stores across the country, including the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and internationally in Australia, Canada, Japan, Switzerland and The Netherlands.  You can also find my designs for fabric, wrapping paper and wall paper on Spoonflower.

I love to work with my hands, creating and sharing art. Please contact me if you’d like to work together or just to say hi.
