Wong received her BFA from the University of South Carolina and is currently pursuing her MFA from Maine College of Art. She works across a variety of disciplines, including drawing, painting, paper engineering, embroidery, bookmaking, and installation, and she cites artists such as Andrea Dezsa, Kara Walker, Shahzia Sikander, and author Laura Esquivel as sources of her inspiration. Wong's current research into the use of the narrative and storytelling methods has led to investigations on the use of various scroll forms with Asian origins as a reference to her own story and heritage. www.evelynwongartist.com
