Asian American Heritage Month: Hua Moua
This week on Asian American Heritage Month: We highlight one of our Board of Directors, Hua Moua Conry!
Hua Moua Conry is an Art Director for Kohl’s Department Stores at their corporate headquarters in Menomonee Falls, WI. She has been an Art Director for four years and has been in the creative industry for ten years. At Kohl’s, she creates the vision for elevated catalogs and promotional event campaigns by telling compelling visual and emotional stories. She leads different teams to carry out these ideas from concept to completion. This involves concept pitches, graphic designing, planning and running photoshoots, and overseeing production in preparation for print. Hua holds a bachelor of Fine Arts in Communication Design from the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design.
In addition to her work, Hua has an Etsy shop selling Hmong folklore art that she has modernized and made available in English through illustrated children’s books, plush, and poster art! The idea of keeping the culture alive and educating others about the Hmong people through folklore is what motivates her.
What a great way to introduce Hmong folktales to children!
