Abstract

My identity is the dominate theme in my works. As a Korean American, I am influenced by life experiences in both countries. These two vastly different cultures and experiences define me as an individual. I use references and symbolism from both cultures as elements in my painting, mixed media, and crafts. I have spent half of my life in Korea, my mother country, and the other half in America, my new homeland. Living as an American, my artworks keep me connected to my Korean roots. Creating artwork is my way to relay who I really am as a Korean American.
