I hope that my paintings help people feel more loved, appreciated, connected and alive.
I am inspired by folk art, embroidery, textiles, goddess mythology and archeology. I use symbols, shapes and markings that explore connections and cross-cultural influences that are embedded in the roots of our shared humanity. My use of colors expresses abundance, fertility, cycles, transformation and diversity.
I am a second generation Korean American and French citizen born in New York City and raised on Long Island. I studied comparative literature at Brown and received an MS in corporate strategy from MIT. I have been a journalist, consultant, filmmaker and martial artist and have studied and worked in Barcelona and Paris. I began painting later in life while at home with children. Additional interests include West Coast Swing, ballroom dancing, gardening, beekeeping and travel. I was inducted into the National Association of Women Artists in 2018. My studio is located in Kent, CT.
