About The Artwork

I conceived of this painting when I was deep in the years of raising small children and wondering if I would ever find space for myself, to think, to be. But when I look at it now, with all the mass shootings in our country, especially after the school shooting in Uvalde, TX, I’m so glad the ladder and the steps are there, to connect the parents to their babies who have gone ahead of them.

When I was six years old, my family moved from Seoul, S. Korea, to Nairobi, Kenya. It was then that I first learned the value of creating images and connecting with people through art. When one loses the ability to communicate with words, images become so much more important/valuable. And while that time in my life where verbal communication was almost nonexistent was short, it left a lasting impression on me. As with most artists, I have been drawing and painting and making things my whole life. I received a MFA in Writing from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and currently live in Boston, MA.
