Hope you enjoyed your stay at my garden. Come back often as I learn to cultivate more stuff.

Let’s talk freelance, grab a (digital) coffee, or just be friends.
Selina is a graphic designer born and raised in Nanjing, China, a picturesque ancient city of literati and artists. Currently dwelling in Providence to pursue her 2-year MFA (’25) in Graphic Design at Rhode Island School of Design. She received her BFA in Communication Design from Washington University in St. Louis.

She takes pride in her one-of-a-kind Chinese name, Kehuan (可幻). It means being capable of imagination, which she tries to manifest in every work with her attention to research and craft. With her intentional generalism in visual communication, she aspires to capture and elicit the deep emotions that define the human experience, and transcend the dichotomies in the visual culture.

She loves to spontaneously hop on random buses to get lost, chase sunsets along the water's edge on foot, or immerse herself in existential crisis. As a child, her dream superpower was the ability to fly, but as she ventured from home, she now dreams of teleportation.
