Yao Cheng Design

About the Presenter:

Founded by Yao Cheng in 2012, we are an online retail + design studio specializing in creating beautiful and delightful watercolors for the everyday.Yao is a watercolor artist and designer based in Columbus, Ohio. While she has been painting and drawing since the age of 5, her introduction to watercolor only began shortly after college. Her connection to this medium was immediate and it has since defined her painting style and marked the beginning for Yao Cheng Design!Our online retail shop and design studio is where Yao’s modern and bright watercolors come to life through products and clientele work. Our retail side focuses on a range of products for the home while the studio side focuses on creating specialty wedding stationeries and larger clientele projects. Throughout all of Yao's work, she is always trying to capture the immediacy of expressions through color, shapes and brush strokes. The emphasis on imperfect marks and unpredictable colors is what makes her designs stand out and feel personable. Best known for her renowned watercolor style, you can find her work on our website, in select retailers such as West Elm, Target, Paper Source, Barnes & Nobel and more!We now offer in-person watercolor workshops here in Columbus at our downtown open loft studio. Enjoy an afternoon of painting simple & fun watercolors with Yao! Go to for more information.
