I have been a print maker for over ten years. During that time, I have traveled from Korea to Japan, Canada, and America, and my memories of these other cultures and people are built into my art. Etching and woodcut are my main media for expression. Using etching, I can show delicate feelings and complicated images, especially of the body and nature. In this work, I show the harmony of humans and nature that I remember from childhood.
