I see my work as a reflection of my passion for nature and humanity, for the natural world and my background in Korean traditional techniques.

I was born in a small fishing village on the South East coast of Korea.  My art is informed by the natural world and found things, especially wood, often wrapped or augmented with intricate patchwork or incorporated into tapestry.  My colour sense is influenced by my background especially the five colours of o-bang-sec, the Korean five colour motif.

 ” Still 9 people undiscovered”
20150622_131613
The piece ‘ Grief-struck’ is commentary on the recent disastrous ferry accident off the South- West coast of Korea in which 304 people( mainly children) lost their lives. Recent tragedies leave me feeling Korean society is degraded by a lack of genuine concern for one’s fellows.
Through  this piece I wish to re-connect with this concern and so help renewal.
