Caroline Hwang

Caroline Hwang paints, stitches, prints, and dreams in Brooklyn. As a kid growing up in Southern California, watching her grandmother crochet and knit inspired her to incorporate her love of crafts and quilting into her illustrations. The late Margaret Kilgallen was also an inspiration. Texture, color, and humor inform Hwang’s delicate illustrations that often combine embroidery and fabric in a style that Kilgallen, with her love of “evidence of the hand,” would have admired. Hwang’s clients include Ph.D, Chronicle Books, the New York Times, and AIGA. Her work is replete with organic elements; logs are a recurring motif and characters are often pictured in natural settings. “Initially, I was into children’s books. As a kid and even as an adult, I was inspired by the illustrations. After I left school, I decided to become more focused on editorial illustration, feeling that the subject matter in my work fit less with children’s books. “When I first showed my book around, I felt that my work was too ‘feminine’ and the less feminine work was more well received,” Hwang explains.
