Hi, my name is Tori Sung-Mee Hong. I’m a queer, 2nd generation Hmong and Korean American artist based in Minneapolis, Mni Sota (“Minnesota”).

I create art for and with marginalized communities in the struggle for social justice and liberation. The people to whom I am most dedicated are LGBTQ people of color. Throughout my work, I weave my experiences with and knowledge of personal and inter-generational healing in order to create healthier, more powerful communities.

I specialize in drawing portraits of people and pets; creating zines; and facilitating workshops on art, healing, reflecting, and visioning.
