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. She currently writes about sciart as a subject editor at Science Borealis, proofreads SAD Mag, and blogs at Lifeology. She also created Seagery Zine, a small annual print publication that explores the overlap between art, science and literature.
Her Frankenflora have been exhibited in Vancouver, BC, at the Beaty Biodiversity Museum, Science World, and the VIVO Media Arts Centre.
Katrina was born in Hamilton, ON (traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee and Anishnaabeg), raised in Singapore, and is grateful to be living on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. She graduated from the University of Victoria with a BSc in Biology and English.
