Katrina Vera Wong is a Korean-Chinese artist, writer, and editor.
Learning from literature, botany, herbaria and ikebana, she makes hybrid flowers from dried or pressed plants and calls them Frankenflora. Her Frankenflora have been exhibited in Vancouver, BC, at the Beaty Biodiversity Museum, Science World, and the VIVO Media Arts Centre.
She currently writes about sciart at Art The Science's Polyfield Magazine and proofreads SAD Mag. She also created Seagery Zine, a small print publication that explores the overlap between art, science and literature.
Lately, she's started a new series of pocket sciart guides, called a bunch of ________, with the blank filled with a different plant family each issue. Visit www.furiebeckite.com/a-bunch-of-guide for more information.
Katrina was born on the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee and Anishnaabeg (so-called Hamilton, ON), raised in Singapore, and is grateful to be living on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations (so-called Vancouver, BC). She graduated from the University of Victoria with a BSc in Biology and English.
