My life is my art

​I spent my middle and high school years in Osaka, Japan.  I returned to Seoul Korea. Now, I have been in Austin,Texas. I get a lot of inspiration from different cultures.

Turning to fine art has changed my life.

The visions I paint inspire emotions when I get it right.  I paint for, mostly, happy emotions; but primal emotions erupt from the colors, the vegetation, the animals, too.  It is gratifying to engender the emotions I feel in the pictures I paint!

I wish my drawings to be viewed as they are and the viewers to be comfortable viewing them.  Occasionally I enjoy expressing my faint memory and imagination in my quirky paintings.

My art means everything to me in my life. That is why I hope my dream will go on forever.
