Hi, I’m Lareina.
That was the summer of 2012 when a Chinese girl put down “Lareina” on the attendance sheet in her first Spanish class. La Reina, “the queen” in Spanish. She made a commitment to herself of owning that name by living every moment with curiosity, gratefulness, and love. To be the queen of her own life.
I grew up in Guangzhou, the 3rd largest city in China, where there is always tasty food and blooming flowers. Creating something visually appealing had been all I wanted since I was little. But as I knew more about how to make it, I wanted to know why I should make it that way. I was intrigued by the beauty underneath.
In the summer of 2016 I hopped on a plane to start an unknown adventure at the other side of the globe, envisioning to become a better version of myself. The rest just came tumbling after.

Some Weird Thoughts
As a curious and sensitive person, I like to put down what I perceive from the outside world in the form of comics, handcrafts, and doodles.
