ARTIST STATEMENT

I inherited the talent of my father, who had excellent hand skills as a Korean traditional fashion designer. Due to working hard and the talent, I have been writing, drawing, and making all the time.

I graduated from the Jewellery/Metal Arts Program of the New Brunswick College of Craft & Design in 2015. I came back for the 2017-18 year in Advanced Studio Practice Program. I created many kinds of jewellery and sculpture during these 5 years. My first priority has been to develop the highest quality and most interesting designs possible. I am very interested in sculptural-hollowware and linked jewellery.
