Born and raised in South Korea, I embarked on a transformative journey when I arrived in the USA at the age of 16. Drawing inspiration from my rich cultural background, I ventured into the vibrant art scene of New York City, enrolling in art schools and earning a BFA degree in interior design from the Fashion Institute of Technology.

My academic pursuits didn't stop there; I furthered my education with dual master's degrees in sustainability and real estate development, earning credentials from both the Fashion Institute of Technology and the University of Miami.

While my professional career initially led me into the world of interior design, spanning over 18 years in the bustling atmosphere of New York City, my passion for painting persisted since my early years. Despite the demands of the design world, the desire to pursue my artistic calling remained ingrained in my soul.

Recently, I transitioned from the realm of interior design to fully embrace my identity as a painter. This shift marks a profound chapter in my artistic journey, allowing me to delve into the exploration of spiritual elements through the lens of modern painting. Drawing on my diverse experiences, cultural roots, and academic background, my art reflects a unique convergence of tradition, contemporary aesthetics, and a deep connection to the spiritual realm.

As I embark on this new chapter as a dedicated painter, my work serves as a testament to the intricate interplay between my South Korean heritage, New York City influences, and the profound spiritual exploration that fuels my artistic expression.
