I was born in South Korea and grew up in Ontario. I studied at Ontario College of Art now (OCAD) majoring in drawing and painting. In the fourth year, I studied at the Off-Campus program in Florence, Italy.
Based on my figure drawings I have received the Elizabeth Greenshield Grant.
I am an elected member of the Society of Canadian Artists, Ontario Society of Artists, Colour and Form Society. In 2020 I was awarded the Mary Pratt Crystal award from the Society of Canadian Artists 52nd Open International Juried Exhibition. This year I made the finalist at the Salt Spring National Art Prize based in BC.
Currently, I am living in Brampton, Ontario while creating my art at the Alton Mills studio in Caledon, Ontario.
