Artist Statement:

The main theme of my work is the healing power of a mother’s love and sacrifice.  In my paintings I use multiple layers of acrylic-hybrid paints to achieve the effect of traditional Korean pigment-based paints, resulting in a distinctly non-western texture and palette.  My work at first provokes an initial experience of whimsical joy within the heart, but later echoes with an undertone of wistful yearning as time passes, with the non-western visual style amplifying this duality.
