Menmin Made was created by Paulina Hoong to bring forward expressive watercolor plants + florals + food + AAPI-inspired art into this world.

I’m a queer, second-gen Chinese-American artist based in the San Francisco Bay Area. 

Through watercolor art, I express my vision for a better world with whimsical, bright, and joyful colors.

To honor my Chinese identity, I named my business "Menmin Made," after my Chinese name. I draw inspiration from Chinese symbolism, the diasporic Midwestern Asian-American experience, being a restaurant kid, and the natural world. I love to smell flowers, taste food, and chase sunsets, which manifest into my art.

My goal is to make art accessible to people from all cultures and brighten up any space!
