I am a Vancouver Island artist. I attended Hong-Ik University in Seoul, Korea, graduating with a BFA degree.
I moved to Vancouver Island in 2004, where I renewed my interest in art, inspired by the island’s natural beauty. I became an active member of The Federation of Canadian Artists in 2008, and an associate member in 2015. I paint full-time, have had some solo exhibitions and have won awards and taught workshops.
I describe myself as a contemporary impressionist and expressionist artist. My desire is to create paintings which bring energy to the canvas. My work is more an expression of the mood in the scene rather than a realistic picture of the scene. My use of color, form, and texture is intuitive.
My hope is that the viewers connect emotionally with the painting in their own way. The result I strive for is a painting from the heart.
