Rayna Lo was born and raised in Chicago, IL. Fueled by her passion to connect more to her Taiwanese heritage, she began learning traditional Chinese calligraphy to help bridge the gap. The memory of taking a Chinese paint brush class during her childhood Chinese school studies had prompted her to investigate the tools. Nurturing this blurry memory was a way for her to hold on to any culture that had been passed down to her. The study of the craft has led her to explore other art forms such as painting and illustration using the same Chinese calligraphy tools. She now resides in Boston, MA.
