Donna Seto (she/her) is a Vancouver-based self-taught watercolour artist who was once told that art wouldn’t get her anywhere. During the pandemic, she revisited her passion for art and started illustrating the buildings of Vancouver’s Chinatown. Donna is drawn to urban settings, marginalized communities, layered histories, and the complexity of memory, which she hopes to capture through her art. She is also a writer with a research background in Politics and International Relations and works at the University of British Columbia. Donna is working on her first novel, a collection of short stories, as well as turning her illustrations of Chinatown into a book. She feels privileged to have grown up on the ancestral, traditional, and unceded territories of the Coast Salish peoples.
