I was born and educated in Seoul, Korea. After graduating with a BFA, B.Ed. from Duk Sung Womens University, I spent most of my time painting to answer questions such as...What is my identity? Where does it belong? What is nature? When I wasn’t painting I was teaching art.
I vacationed in Canada a few times where I met my husband Jim. We lived a few years in Edmonton, Ab. and then moved out to the countryside. We managed a general store beside a First Nation community, a Metis community and a farming community. I met a lot of First Nation, Metis, and Caucasian people there. This was a special experience in my life because I could reflect about human beings and myself.
Upon completion of our contract to manage the store we returned to Edmonton where I again turned to my professional career as an artist instead of working as a cashier.
