Cam Anh Nguyen is a freelance illustrator living and working in Hanoi, Vietnam.
She was raised in a small room of a French villa in Hanoi downtown. Crowed small alleys, mobile shops selling household goods and street food carried Cam Anh through her youth. In the summers, she used to spend all of her drawing time in her mother’s kitchen with a view to her father’s small garden where she explored all kinds of plants, flowers and insects.
From her childhood (at the age of 10), she had the chance to study art under the guidance of Pham Viet Hong Lam – a Vietnamese Contemporary Fine Arts Painter and his works are always has great influence on Cam Anh. You can get lost in his art exhibition online here:
She is currently working in a small house next to her old house, kept companied during the day by her cat and parakeet. She is spending her working hours surrounded by beautiful things: her childhood doodle, vintage toys, collected pottery, and books.
