Cathy Zhang from SeeWhyZhang Design
Cathy Zhang says she loved drawing when she was young, but eventually grew out of her creative endeavors, giving them up for the "real world." At least she thought she did.
Ms. Zhang graduated with an undergraduate degree in psychology, and at age 24 pursued an MBA. She says she dabbled her way through various roles in online marketing, analytics, and product development. However, she was unfulfilled in spite of her professional success.
After moving to Portland, Oregon for a "dream job" Ms. Zhang says she picked up a paintbrush for the first time in more than a decade, painting at night after work. SeeWhyZhang Design was born. She quit her full time corporate job in 2016 for her art business. Ms, Zhang says, "I'm thankful everyday that I get to exercise my creative and analytical muscles while facing the challenges of growing a creative business."
We are thankful too!
