Evelyn Wong joined Simons Architects in 2019 as a Marketing Assistant. She brings her experience in marketing and graphics to the team from her previous work at the University of South Carolina and most recently, as a Student Ambassador at Maine College of Art during her graduate studies.
Evelyn exhibited work as a botanical artist for ten years before moving to Portland for her MFA degree, and she currently works as an interdisciplinary artist and bookbinder with her research and focus on representation for Asian American and POC communities. She is also an instructor at Maine College of Art for the Continuing Studies program, where she teaches a wide variety of courses and workshops.
In her spare time, Evelyn is an enthusiastic cook, collector of beautiful materials, and a fearless adventurer. When she is not leaning over a pot of delicious Chinese food, she can be found outdoors at the First Friday Art Walks selling beautiful handcrafted items or taking her husband, friends, and colleagues along with her on uncertain field trips.
