I am an artist for oriental water color paintings and calligraphy, instructed in South Korea (1985 – 1992) and Massachusetts in USA (1996-2000). I worked for Red Cross in South Korea for 13 years, but always had a love for classic oriental painting, calligraphy, the natural world, and was encouraged to discover my own talent. I started calligraphy at an academy since I was young and have been continuing water color painting since.

I use oriental painting brush made from furs such as wolf and horse. For the ink, I ground ink sticks with water on a specific ink stone to be used in my paintings and writing calligraphy. The ink sticks are made of rosin root from burning oil and the ink stone is made of natural rock. My subject matter originates from my memory, imagination, and photos, but sometimes I get inspirations from my travels outside.
