Duachaka Her

Duachaka Her is a Hmong-American cartoonist and illustrator. Her love for drawing and storytelling started at a young age from watching animated cartoon shows to reading comic books at the library and bookstore. As a child of Hmong immigrants, she struggled with the balance between being Hmong and American. These difficulties lead her to becoming fond of her culture and creating works about her experiences growing up. Duachaka graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Stout with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Entertainment Design and concentration in Comics and Sequential Art. She is the creator of graphic novels The Collection and Then and Now. She also illustrates picture books and is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. Today she resides in central Wisconsin and enjoys reading and watching movies in her spare time.
