Hey, I’m Chie.

I’m a lettering artist based in San Francisco who enjoys being creative and active. So why not do both?

P.S. It’s pronounced “Chee-ay”.

I love sharing bold, uplifting messages through:

My Why

Because I believe there’s a creator and athlete in all of us, and flexing your creative and physical muscles can lead to a happier and healthier life.

I illustrate uplifting messages to spread positivity, promote active living, and encourage others to get creative. I love drawing and studying letterforms and I spend most of my life thinking about how I can apply my lettering to a new medium to make it unique and memorable.

Whether you’re in need of an inspirational mural for your space, a lettering workshop for your team, or simply a crazy idea for your brand, I got you covered.

Do what feels good. And together let’s help others feel good too.
