Kim Nguyen is an aspiring concept artist and illustrator from the DFW area of Texas who loves to paint and come up with design ideas. Her main tools of the trade include watercolors and casein paints. Occasionally, she'll also use Photoshop and Manga Studio 5 for finishing touches on traditional paintings. She is obsessed with patterns, and her goal is to learn as much as she can about various cultures. Her hypothesis is that if she can learn the significance of iconography and visual motifs in relation to specific cultures, she may be able to tailor designs for concepts that strongly communicate their background story.
Since graduating from the University of Texas at Arlington in 2013, her work has been featured in Guillermo del Toro's "The Book of Life" movie.
