Cheong-ah Hwang's Profile
My passion is making things out of paper. I make mostly paper relief sculptures and 2D paper illustrations. When I was growing up in Seoul, Korea, my parents ran a printing shop. I had all sorts of paper available all the time. Playing with paper was the most fun thing to do. After I came to USA as a grown-up, I discovered many different forms of paper art, and I started working with paper since 2000.
I have had exhibitions, workshops and demonstrations. I have been working on commissions from individuals, public institutions, and businesses. I designed and created the cover image of the award-winning author, Philip Pullman's book, "GRIMM TALES for YOUNG and OLD", published in 2012, in England by Penguin Books UK. Currently, I'm working on a how-to book of paper sculpture.
