Hello and welcome to my blog.
I am an illustrator and I have just finished my MA in Children's Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art. Click on the right to see examples of my stories, art and sketch books.

 

 
I originally studied Visual Design and Interior Design at Sookmyung University in Korea and whilst at university I made my first picture book Raindrops, which is about the social issue of poverty. I was excited to have this book Raindrops published in Korea in 2009.
After university I continued to follow my passion of illustration and storytelling.
I illustrated a chapter book called Modern Busy Family, and made a promotional picturebook for the Seoul Milk Public company.  I was also employed to make drawings for the government town planning office in Seoul.
During these years I decided to learn more about picturebook making and applied to study the MA at the Cambridge School of Art. It has been a great experience and I’ve learnt many things, and played with many different materials such as print-making, collage etc
I was happy to receive my first UK commission in September 2013, to illustrate a book about two cats and their adventures. It will be published this April.
I really enjoy making picturebooks. This is my life and my play!
