Many people have told me when they see my art it either calms them down or it cheers them up. Those kinds of comments are what motivate me. Bringing joy and happiness to others through my artwork is my main goal.
The best way to do it is by capturing the moments that make me happy.
That is why my art subjects are often moments or scenes you can find in daily life.

In Search of Light
It all started when I got a call from my Mom saying that my Grandmother had passed away. Due to the Covid lockdown I couldn’t fly back to Korea, so I mourned my loss by remembering precious memories I shared with her. I remembered snapshots of happy moments and her warm smile. Reminiscing felt like I was reliving one of my favorite moments of looking at photo books with my grandparents and learning about the roots of our family.
I thought deeply about Korea and what it was that connected me to my home, and what it is that connects me to California which is my new home. This body of work represents the idea of connecting to a place during a time of limited access to new experiences, by getting in touch with what I loved about old experiences.
