“Sadness” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Sadness" Acrylic on Canvas - February 2017 This painting is designed to be simply honest.

“What Rhymes With Orange” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"What Rhymes With Orange" Acrylic on Canvas - February 2017 This painting was a fun one that I made because I was loving this new orange colored paint that I had gotten, and wanted to create an abstract around it but didn't quite know what that looked like. Also h as it doesn't like to [...]

“La Dorada” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"La Dorada" Acrylic on Canvas - February 2017 An abstract painting symbolizing my impressions and feelings of Peru.

"Color Pop" Acrylic on Canvas - February 2017 12x24 inches / 30x61 cm Painting this I was feeling frustrated at our current culture.

w "Tiger Lilies" Acrylic on Canvas - February 2017 11x14 inches / 29x36 cm One of the great things about getting away from snowy New York was being able to take in and see some flowers. It was a bit odd I admit seeing "summer" flowers in February but it was also rather lovely. This [...]

“Minho-Rex” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Minho-Rex" Acrylic on Canvas - February 2017 12x24 inches / 30x61 cm This was a fingerpaint of our youngest cat Minho.

"Desert Penguin" Acrylic on Canvas - February 2017 24x30 inches / 61x76 cm This is the first painting I did after getting back to New York from our vacation to Peru. While we spent most of our time in the capital city, we did make a brief 1 night, 2 day jaunt down to Paracas, [...]

"Seollal" (설날) Acrylic on Canvas - January 2017 This painting was created the first official day of Lunar New Year or Seollal of 2017.

"New Year" Acrylic on Canvas - January 2017 This painting is based on a photo and a memory of my hometown in Korea, and my overall interpretation of the two meshed to create my feelings surrounding the place. The photo that was used as a reference is one taken in February of 2014 during the [...]

“Starlight” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Starlight" Acrylic on Canvas - December 2016 This painting reminds me of the MUSE song Starlight. Not that I planned for that, because I was totally listening to kpop when I painted it. But the huge emotions that song takes me through I feel are captured in this painting. The depth that it has and [...]

“Poinsetta” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Poinsetta" Acrylic on Canvas December 2016 This painting is one that I did thinking of my husband. It's similar in feeling to me to my Epiphany painting, but with him in mind instead of my self. It looks a bit like a Poinsetta, a flower of December and was painted the day before his birthday. [...]

“Cherry Blossom Date” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Cherry Blossom Date" Acrylic on Canvas - December 2016 This painting is based on a memory I have of a cherry blossom date that I had with my now husband Richard. We went every year of our time together to go and see the blossoms and walk underneath their branches during the day and also [...]

“Aqua Lung” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Aqua Lung" Acrylic on Canvas December 2016 This was a fun painting that I feel like I ended up painting because I didn't really want to paint fish. I think this is because my last name starts with "ish" and so of course I got called fish a couple of times in grade school. Mind [...]

“Acid Rain” – Abstract Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Acid Rain" Abstract Acrylic on Canvas - August 2016 The direction for this painting was to create a colorful city-scape on water. I also wanted to do it almost entirely with the same palette knife and have it reflect properly on water that was a bit tumultuous, perhaps due to rain. The sky also has [...]

“Iris” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Iris" Acrylic on Canvas - April 2016 Before painting this I had seen the documentary Iris – which follows the socialite and brilliant Iris Apfel. An inspiring woman of 90 some years, she’s known for her eclectic fashion sense and large, round glasses. Without spoiling the movie – that I HIGHLY recommend, she started off [...]

“Snow Child” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Snow Child" Acrylic on Canvas - December 2016 I painted this one on stream. A new addition to my shadow children - this one is quite fun.

“Snowman Buttons” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Snowman Buttons" Acrylic on Canvas - December 2016 This was a fun winter painting I did on stream. I had painted something similar on a tiny canvas that I had put on our Christmas tree.

“A Sunset in Three Parts” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"A Sunset in Three Parts" Acrylic on Canvas - November 2016 So often I paint sunsets on one individual canvas. Yet, I always like the look of paintings that are spread out across multiple canvases. So, I chose to do this one as a three part painting. Each are equally lovely in their own right, [...]

“Clowning Around” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Clowning Around" Acrylic on Canvas - November 2016 The inspiration for this one was my love of clownfish - or NEMO for those of you who are more pop culture afficianados. I wanted to create a mermaid with a sunken ship that had some detail and depth to not only the water but also to [...]

“Maki and Minho Sunset” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Maki and Minho Sunset" Acrylic on Canvas - May 2016 My first painting to ever paint live on Twitch!

“Tree of Light” – Glow in the Dark Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Tree of Light" Glow in the Dark Acrylic on Canvas - January 2016 This was a painting in two parts. The first part being a painting that to me was quite deep and meaningful but was kind of a joke to my husband and friends. You see, I wanted to paint my impression of what [...]

“Sea Nymph” – Acrylic on Canvas [SOLD] thumbnail

"Sea Nymph" Acrylic on Canvas - November 2016 I really wanted to challenge myself and paint a mermaid. I've only ever tried to paint one before and it is a painting that I like but do not love.

“Sky and Sea” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Sky and Sea" Acrylic on Canvas - October 2016 A two-canvas painting, I like that this one can be displayed together or as individuals. I was working on building my skills with using various techniques to make clouds, waves, sand and perspective. As a whole it’s a bit more folk-artsy than I prefer to typically [...]

“Autumn Reds and Yellows” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Autumn Reds and Yellows" Acrylic on Canvas - October 2016 Autumn is my favorite season of the year and in this painting I was trying to capture the tree colors that are the reason why this is so. In looking at this painting it almost appears as if the red tree in losing its leaves [...]

“Strength – Self Portrait” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Strength - Self Portrait" Acrylic on Canvas- September 2016 I was inspired to paint this after watching a Kpop music video. Kind of a crazy thing to say for me, but this is based off of one of the BTS preview art videos. I’d been wanting to paint something similar for a long time and [...]

“Yes” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Yes" Acrylic on Canvas - September 2016 I have been fighting an ongoing inward battle of whether or not to post this. But I feel that it needs to be posted, though it will probably just sit in a corner of my house somewhere for the rest of its existence. There is a war going [...]

“Violet Mountains” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Violet Mountains" Glow-in-the-Dark Acrylic on Canvas - September 2016 I painted this painting as my friend’s dog died. That sounds like a sad and horrible way to start a description of a painting. But for me, it’s a beautiful one. You see, this particular dog was very dear to me and to my heart. With [...]

“Drifting” – Acrylic Painting on Canvas thumbnail

"Drifting" Acrylic Painting on Canvas - September 2016 This painting was a long work in progress. You see, I had begun it last year and had been working through some deep and difficult stuff emotionally. I was facing it head on, but I couldn’t really see how things could turn out in a way that [...]

“Moonlight Garden” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Moonlight Garden" Acrylic on Canvas - September 2016 One drama that I’ve been enjoying this summer and fall is Moonlight Drawn by Clouds. I’m not a huge fan of traditional Korean dramas but this one had fantastic cinematography and was so colorfully vibrant that it drew me in week after week. Several of my favorite [...]

“Possibilities” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Possibilities" Acrylic on Canvas - September 2016 This painting to me has a very similar feeling as ‘Child of Light’. Both have the little shadow dancer that to me expresses my pure inner feelings. This one may not look like much from an initial glance but working up from the bottom of the painting, it [...]

“End the Violence” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"End the Violence" Acrylic on Canvas - September 2016 There is a week in September I call my “Hell Week”. It’s a week that all of my good memories seem to be completely overshadowed by bad memories and tragic circumstances. This is my painting that came out of that week this year. I would go [...]

“Poppy” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Poppy" - Acrylic on Canvas September 2016 In the last year I’ve really grown to love poppies. Maybe it’s due to a slight obsession of the Wizard of Oz stories and other stories based around Oz. (My back garden is named Oz and I have a yellow brick road going to my back door.) I [...]

“Maki and Minho Christmas 2016” – Acrylic Painting thumbnail

"Maki and Minho Christmas 2016" Acrylic Painting on Canvas - October 2016 This is our Christmas card this year. I got the idea after hand sketching a ton of cards last year and realizing that the number to do has grown immensely. I can’t do it – my hand will fall off! Not really, but [...]

“Clock of the Time Dragon” – Glow-in-the-Dark Abstract thumbnail

"Clock of the Time Dragon" 2 Piece Glow-in-the-Dark Abstract Acrylic on Canvas - August 2016 This is a glow in the dark painting.

“Autumn Swing” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Autumn Swing" Acrylic on Canvas - May 2016 I started to paint this on stream and had to return later to finish it on my twitch channel. It is certainly an autumn scene with the colors of the leaves. It also is reminiscent to me of a painting I did shortly after we first got [...]

“Boy With Bike” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Boy With Bike" Acrylic on Canvas - August 2016 I took inspiration for this painting from both my husband’s love of riding and anime. While I don’t often do silhouettes, I felt that it reflected the reality of his joy and wonder of the beauty of nature that he always shares with me on his [...]

“Impavid (Butterfly)” – Abstract Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Impavid (Butterfly)" Abstract Acrylic on Canvas - July 2016 I wanted to paint a butterfly. I wanted it to be colorful and look as though it’s almost breaking apart and falling to pieces. I think that this painting captures that desire. It was the second painting of the night. I started off with a more [...]

“Fractals” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Fractals" Acrylic on Canvas - August 2016 Looking at the background colors that I had placed on the palette, I was reminded of the late 1980’s and early 1990’s fashion. It reminded me of a shirt or jacket that my mother would have worn. It also reminded me of my ice-skating Barbie who had this [...]

“All for One – Nice” Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"All for One - Nice" Mixed Media and Acrylic on Canvas - July 2016 This was painted the night that I heard of the Nice attacks. For me, painting can be like a prayer. Often it’s done in a reflective or meditative state and the colors and strokes that I choose are the process by [...]

“Jazz Kitty” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

I wanted to paint a cat holding a coffee cup in response to some hate that I had received online - A bit of a tongue in cheek rebuttal if you will. I knew that the coffee cup would have a foam heart, because the message that I want to spread is love and picking [...]

“Rainbow Minho” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Rainbow Minho" Acrylic on Canvas - July 2016 I wanted to do a good painting of Minho that really captured his colorful personality. And so I turned to a more Fauvist style to showcase his handsome good looks. And I am so in love with this painting and how it turned out. It does reflect [...]

“The Silver Lining” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"The Silver Lining" Acrylic on Canvas - May 2016 This painting was created while I was hanging out with my friend Danielle.

"Serenity" Acrylic on Canvas - June 2016 This was the last painting that I have from my 20’s. There are a lot of feelings that I have going into this new decade in my life. I know that a lot of things will happen and change – as they have in the last 10 years. [...]

“Pine Ridge” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Pine Ridge" Acrylic on Canvas - January 2017 This is a painting that was actually difficult to make emotionally. It's like in creating it, it was a painting I didn't want to make but it revealed itself to me over the course of making it and told me what it was going to look like [...]

“Channeling Happiness” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Channeling Happiness" Acrylic on Canvas - April 2016 This painting was an effort to paint something to cheer up the hubs and I.  For some reason, the end of March was what seemed to be a rollercoaster of emotions within the course of a couple of days.  We were both worn out physically and emotionally [...]

“Peach Blossom Tree” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Peach Blossom Tree" Acrylic on Canvas - May 2016 I recently went on a drive with hubs and on our way to our destination he took a detour to a lovely little flower park in the city. Mostly filled with hundreds of varieties of roses, it also had lilac bushes, magnolias and two large pink [...]

“An Evening in Color” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"An Evening in Color" Acrylic Mixed Media on Canvas - March 2016 This painting was actually fairly simple and straightforward.

“Positive Vibes” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Positive Vibes" Acrylic on Canvas - September 2015 This was painted in an action painting style and now that I have it I almost wished that I would have filmed its creation. Created with glow in the dark and neon paints its inception is a culmination of my thoughts on what it would be like [...]

“Sunrise on the Canal” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

Sunrise on the Canal Acrylic on Canvas - January 2016 This painting is about friendship. I painted it with my friend Danielle when we had a wine and paint night at my house. I’ve really only ever painted with one other person like that before and it was at our apartment in Korea – years [...]

“Washing Ashore” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Washing Ashore" Acrylic on Canvas - June 2016 I painted this one in part in honor of the announcement of Lee Min Ho's new Korean drama that has a nautical mermaid theme - titled Legend of the Blue Sea. I also was thinking about my cousin's upcoming wedding on the Jersey Shore, and how I [...]

“Curious Maki” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

I love our Maki girl. I think she makes a great subject to paint, as she's a gorgeous cat and very expressive. This is an adaption of a picture I took of her running about our house shortly after we first moved in. In the actual photo, she was perched on the side of the [...]

“With Heart” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"With Heart" Acrylic on Canvas - June 2016 I painted this with a pained heart. A heart that ached for all of the violence in this world. My paint cried. It cried for those who no longer had a voice. It ranted for those that are afraid to speak out. It screamed out for my [...]

“Seryu-dong” – (My Korean Home) thumbnail

"Seryu-dong" Acrylic on Canvas - April 2016 This abstract was created thinking about our time in Korea and all of the many happenings that brought my husband and I together.  It truly was a home to me.  A place where I discovered a lot about myself and over the course of 6 years grew and [...]

“Dark Sails on a Peaceful Sky” thumbnail

"Dark Sails on a Peaceful Sky" Acrylic on Canvas - November 2015 One of the most beautiful pieces that I painted during our time in Florida, to me it’s also somewhat sad. I often paint as a way of expressing my feelings, especially those that are hard to formulate into words. It’s warm but I [...]

“Maki for Spring” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Maki for Spring" - Acrylic on Canvas Seeing my little girl's eyes shining as she ran around her grandparent's house and watched the birds outside the window, she indeed fulfills her name, which means hope.  I have hope for spring, for our life here in New York and look forward to when I can see [...]

“Epiphany” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Epiphany" - July 2015 Acrylic on Canvas This is the largest piece I have ever done. Seriously, the canvas is almost as big as I am. It is also probably one of the most personal pieces I've ever created, albeit abstractly. I would explain the my reasoning and the meaning behind it for me, but [...]

“Resistance”- Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Resistance" Acrylic on Canvas - January 2017 This is a fun but aggressive painting. I wanted to try some new techniques working with mediums and textures in acrylic painting. It took significantly longer to create which I often have very little patience for, and included a lot of adding paint and then rubbing it away [...]

“Autumn Soul” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Autumn Soul" Acrylic on Canvas - October 2015 In painting this piece I thought of many things. For one, my own self and spirit. I love autumn and the changing leaves.

“Child of Ice” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Child of Ice" Acrylic on Canvas - March 2015 Last Spring I painted a piece called Child of Light. While I know that it went to the best possible home, deep down I’ve missed that painting.

“Maki and Minho – Beginnings” thumbnail

"Maki and Minho - Beginnings" Acrylic on Canvas - April 2016 I love our fur babies.  I have been meaning to paint a picture of the two of them but it’s almost impossible to get even a photo of them because they’re always in motion.  It is endearingly precious though to me to see the [...]

“Jellyfish” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Jellyfish" Abstract Acrylic on Canvas - April 2016 Jellyfish came without me expecting it. I was playing with colors and techniques until it just felt right. And then I stopped and took a step back to look at it and saw... a jellyfish! My dad was getting ready to go to his Florida house for [...]

"Champ de Mars" Acrylic on Canvas - January 2016 I actually painted this the evening of my younger sister’s birthday.

“Zico” – Glow in the Dark thumbnail

"Zico" Glow in the Dark Acrylic on Canvas - February 2016 I painted this and a similar painting listening to a recent release of Zico (from Block B)’s music. I just started to paint what I felt as I listened and this is what came out. I find it a bit ironic after the fact [...]

"I Am You, You Are Me" Glow in the Dark Acrylic on Canvas - February 2016 This piece was painted along with Zico while listening to his latest song – of which the title is the same as this painting. I was thinking about the vibe of the song and just expressing myself in neon [...]

“Ladylike” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Ladylike" Acrylic on Canvas - January 2016 When I was young, my mom used to stress that I needed to behave like a lady, and embody what a lady was and should be. But I didn’t grow up in the era of prim and proper “ladies”. I grew up in the era of power suits! [...]

“Sleeping Kitten” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Sleeping Kitten" Acrylic on Canvas - March 2016 This is the very first painting I made of our newest kitten Minho. As I prepared to sleep he laid down on the floor next to my canvas and fell asleep. I never expected that we would get another Russian Blue kitten and certainly not a boy. [...]

"Breaking down walls and an adventure into the unknown" Acrylic on Canvas - March 2016 Right now our little family is going through some major changes.

“Gemini” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Gemini" Acrylic on Canvas - February 2016 My birthday being mid June makes me a Gemini. And in many ways I’m the embodiment of what a Gemini is supposed to be. It’s like sometimes I’m just half of what I feel I am/are capable of. Often it’s as though there’s a part of me going [...]

“The Meadow” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"The Meadow" Acrylic on Canvas - October 2015 This was painted with a combination of self-reflection and thinking about my nieces (of which I have 2, soon to be 3!) I feel like I was raised with a fairytale mindset that the world is a beautiful place. And yet, as time went on, the beauty [...]

“Snaring the Sun” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Maui Snaring the Sun" Acrylic on Canvas - March 2016 There are a lot of different names for Crepuscular rays or rays of sunshine that meet at one point. The choice for this painting’s name comes from “The Ropes of Maui” a name tied to a Polynesian legend that I first read as a child. [...]

“World” – Abstract Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"World" Abstract Acrylic on Canvas - April 2016 The word world is taken from old English meaning Age of Man.

“Dreamcatcher” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

When I was a little girl, my family went on a trip to Texas and Oklahoma. While we were down there we visited some museums and saw the Trail of Tears memorial. I took from that trip a lot of memories and thoughts about the people displaced from their homeland. I also took with me [...]

“Lazy Days” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Lazy Days" Acrylic on Canvas - April 2016 My father recently spent some time at his house in Florida and sent me some pictures of the boats, beaches and sunsets. I don’t know if they were to gloat over the great time he’d been having or to just share in his joy to be there. [...]

“Secret Beach” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Secret Beach (Thailand)" Acrylic on Canvas - May 2015 Loosely based on a picture that we took on our honeymoon, this one is more of a representation of my overall memory of Secret Beach in Thailand.

“Embrace” –  Abstract Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

“Embrace” Abstract Acrylic on Canvas – Summer 2014 This painting is a physical representation of my idea of what the embrace of love is like.  It’s colorful, it washes over you like a wave and it’s all encompassing.  Sometimes it’s a bit messy and doesn’t make sense and certainly there are many layers and levels [...]

“Scarecrow” – Abstract Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Scarecrow" Abstract Acrylic on Canvas - 2015 We have a huge pine tree in the corner of our new yard and I noted the other day that it seems that it has become the home to a lot of crows. Maki in particular has been paying them a lot of attention as she sits at [...]

“The Mermaid” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"The Mermaid" Acrylic on Canvas - June 2015 This painting is inspired by someone dear to my heart. I find that many of us who are dreamers have a mythological creature, Disney character, superhero or other fictional being (or even sports team) that they relate to and possibly in turn become a bit obsessed with. [...]

“If Black and White Photos Were in Color” thumbnail

"If Black and White Photos Were in Color" Acrylic on Canvas - November 2015 I find that every time I’m at my dad’s house or grandmother’s house or in-laws I enjoy looking through the old albums.  With black and white images and sepia tones that look like someone spent some serious selection time choosing the [...]

“Pink Skies” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Pink Skies"' Acrylic on Canvas - April 2016 Growing up I heard the popular sailors adage – about pink skies at night being a promise of good weather and in the morning a warning.  But just once – if only in a painting can a pink sky just be? Does it have to be good [...]

“The Waterbird” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"The Waterbird" Acrylic on Canvas - February 2016 I was looking through my pictures of Florida when hubby asked to choose a photo for me to use as painting inspiration. He actually chose two photos, a sunset scene and a bird near the water and asked me if I could try to put the bird [...]

“Mushu” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Mushu" Acrylic on Canvas - October 2015 While riding around enjoying the fall leaves I saw a tree that I felt looked like a dragon. I can only describe it as the childhood game where you look at the clouds and try to find pictures.. Only with trees. With the fall green, yellow, oranges and [...]

“Maki in Red (Connection)” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Maki in Red (Connection)" Acrylic on Canvas - October 2015 This is my 4th piece in my Maki collection - a collection based on our cat who's named Maki. While she's a Russian blue, I decided to go opposite of the blue that I usually paint her in and go with a red shade. She's [...]

“Dragonflies” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Dragonflies" Acrylic on Canvas - October 2015 This one was painted in a similar mindset as "The Meadow", but with an emphasis on blues and purples.

“Space Bento” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Space Bento" Acrylic on Canvas - November 2015 My goal for this painting was to be a fun surrealist style painting with a quirky take on a science theme.  There are many potential astronauts in training out there that carry lunchboxes around.. it’s just that most of them are in elementary school!  Seriously though, I [...]

“Northern Lights” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Northern Lights" Acrylic on Canvas - February 2016 I wanted to paint a snowy scene, but when I looked outside it was dark. And so I let my mind wander.. to a place further north. A place where the night sky is awash in glorious color that is reflected on all (including the water) around [...]

“CCTV” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"CCTV" Acrylic on Canvas - September 2015 This is a statment piece. It's is one of my most artsy - least attractive at first glance pieces. I know that. But it sums up in a picture how I feel of the big brother state that I found myself wholly in while I was in Korea. [...]

“Biplane in Orange Clouds” thumbnail

Biplane in Orange Clouds Acrylic on Canvas - November 2015 The day that we went to pick my dad up from the airport, the sky held magnificent orange clouds.

“Cyanide West” – Abstract Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Cyanide West" Abstract Acrylic on Canvas - 2015 I was on an Oz tangent while I was listening to Beck music, as one does - or rather, as I do. It got me thinking about myself in college because I listened to A LOT of his stuff then. I was friends with the "alternative crowd" [...]

“My All” – Abstract Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"My All" Abstract Acrylic on Canvas - Aug 2014 This painting is quite possibly the most devoid of color out of any painting that I have.  It is also possibly the deepest and darkest painting that I have ever created.  It is quite literally a black and white piece.  This is perhaps why I've never [...]

“On Billows and the Sea” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"On Billows and the Sea" - August 2015 Acrylic on Canvas I love sailboats. To me there's something so beautiful about vehicles powered by renewable, clean, natural energy such as water and air. I guess it's not so surprising that we now own a hybrid car. During my childhood, as I learned about history, sailing [...]

“Never Let Me Go” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Never Let Me Go" - July 2015 Acrylic on Canvas This painting was created during a time of despair when I finally felt myself give up control over trying to not be depressed and in the process felt my sadness lift and instead of sadness I was filled with hope. In response, I painted this [...]

“Hidden Truth” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Hidden Truth" - July 2015 Acrylic on Canvas This painting is a reflection that not all truths are hard to face or once you face them are desirable to keep. In the process of creating this one I literally wrote the word truth on the canvas in green paint and then covered it with what [...]

“January” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"January" Acrylic on Canvas - January 2016 This was one of my first paintings of the year. I wanted to incorporate some elements that I often paint a lot – mountains, trees, dramatic skies and what might be a body of water with a snowy scene theme. I love how the body of water appears [...]

“The Everglow” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"The Everglow" Acrylic on Canvas - November 2015 The sun I created in part by first starting to create a mandala type of design with hearts that in turn started to look like a flower. I thought that was quite a beautiful way to look at the sun, if even for a minute. Its rays [...]

“Lay Me Down” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Lay Me Down" Acrylic on Canvas - November 2015 As I finished this painting I was reminded of the song “What the Water Gave Me”. It’s one part giving up and another part just becoming. I have not always loved water or swimming. I can still recall at least one instance where I was sure [...]

“Missing You” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

Missing You (Korean Drama "Missing You/보고 십다") Acrylic on Canvas 21in. x 25.5in. June 2013 I don’t quite know who I am anymore. Fragmented from the reality of what once was – a pretty face, that’s what the world sees. But inside I’m fragmented, scarred and bruised from life and the wicked turns that it [...]

“Tranquility” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Tranquility" Acrylic on Canvas - March 2016 Sometimes I feel like my life is a big giant existential crisis lol!  Daily I’m reminded that what I have is a blessing.   But sometimes it really gets to me and I have to wade through a lot of negative emotions in order to get to the point [...]

“Harvest” thumbnail

"Harvest" Acrylic on Canvas - May 2016 This is a painting of a tomato. I wish I could make it sound fancier but I love tomatoes! Growing up we always had a HUGE garden and my dad would always plant a lot of tomato plants. One year we had 60 tomato plants!!! That was a [...]

“As Reality Swirls About Me” thumbnail

"As Reality Swirls About Me" Acrylic on Canvas - November 2015 I told Richard shortly after finishing this; sometimes I try to depict what I envision quantum physics might look like. It’s an interesting perspective to try to grasp. Often I find that in trying to do so, that the world just starts to look [...]

“Talking to the Moon” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Talking to the Moon" Acrylic on Canvas - March 2016 I allowed myself to go a bit darker with this piece.  While it may be clear to some who watch our daily vlogs, I really struggle sometimes with trying to stay bright and not give in to feelings of depression.  I’m always optimistic but sadness [...]

“Black Pearl” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Black Pearl" Acrylic on Canvas June 2015 I've always been a fan of pirates and stories about sailing. Perhaps this is why I love to paint boats! This one is inspired in part by the super popular, now overdone, Pirates of the Caribbean theme. I had created the sky and was contemplating what the painting [...]

“October Romance” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"October Romance" Acrylic on Canvas - October 2015 This was designed to be part of my Embrace series (of which there are only 2). The feeling of the embrace is two sides of one heart. In this case, this embrace was intended to reflect our marriage. We got married in October when the leaves were [...]

“Birthday” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

This was the last painting I made at 28. And it's a finger paint. Lol! But this painting is special. I started painting it as a meditation, unaware of where it was going to turn out or what it was going to be. I turned on some ambience music on my radio and just started [...]

“Awakened Self” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Awakened Self" Acrylic on Canvas - June 2015 I created this piece in an attempt to do a self-portrait that describes how I currently see myself. A large majority of my self portraits have a grey background so I tried to keep that theme running. This one also has a definite blue theme, but rather [...]

“Miami Vice” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Miami Vice" Acrylic on Canvas - November 2015 My first time in Florida was during the mid 1990’s. You see, I have an uncle who lives in Daytona Beach, and my family traveled down to visit him and see Disney World. I still have this lasting imprint on my mind of that first impression of [...]

“A Very Rainy Day” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"A Very Rainy Day" Abstract Acrylic on Canvas - June 2015 A week ago (May 30th to be exact) Richard and I went on a bike ride through downtown Rochester. We were both being a little moody but were trying to make the most of it. We were about a third of the way to [...]

“Red Mountains” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Red Mountains" Acrylic on Canvas - May 2015 The title for this one comes with some influence from Richard. His favorite color is red and the red landscape is what drew him into this painting. The painting itself is a play on perspective - both depth/field and color. I had just gotten off the phone [...]

“Pollen” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Pollen" Abstract Acrylic on Canvas - May 2015 I paint a lot of pictures that include nature scenes but deep down I love a good abstract. One overarching theme I try to represent in my work is that of life. It's easy to paint what's clearly visible on the surface level but to dig deeper [...]

“Sentimental” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Sentimental" Acrylic on Canvas - February 2016 The day that I painted this painting I was obsessed with the Kpop group WINNER’s song Sentimental. I feel like it really did touch my sentiments at that moment and was playing on repeat in my mind.. like I really, really liked it! So, I listened to it [...]

“Coconuts kill 150 people each year” thumbnail

"Coconuts kill 150 people each year" Acrylic on Canvas - November 2015 Coconuts can and have indeed killed people, but a majority of actual deaths by coconut are from angry enslaved monkeys that are forced to pick coconuts everyday, all day throwing or kicking the coconuts down and hitting their masters in the head. Every [...]

“Sunset on the Palms” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Sunset on the Palms" Abstract Acrylic on Canvas - May 2015 This one was a request from the hubby. We were looking at pictures from our honeymoon and he asked if I could try to recreate a picture he had taken of the sun setting from our beach hut where we were staying in Thailand. [...]

“Five O’Clock Somewhere” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Five O'Clock Somewhere" Abstract Acrylic on Canvas - May 2015 Richard and I were looking at photos from our honeymoon and thinking about Thailand and how life has changed so much for us since then. While we had started Hallyu Back and many of our various social medias, we didn't know how it would completely [...]

“Pearly Gates” – Abstract Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Pearly Gates" Abstract Acrylic on Canvas - April 2015 A few years ago I read the book Tears of Mermaids by Stephen Bloom. It gave me a new understanding and appreciation for pearls, a jewel that is my birthstone - but one that was once one of the most valuable items in the ancient world. [...]

“Wildflowers” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Wildflowers" Acrylic on Canvas - April 2015 I want to grow a lot of healthy vegetables and plants this summer including healing flowers and herbs.  This painting has coneflowers (echinacea) and dandelions because they are awesome overlooked super foods that I can't wait to start growing them and incorporating them into my diet! This artwork [...]

“Flowers by the Sea” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Flowers by the Sea" Acrylic on Canvas - April 2015 I was walking through a conservatory near to my new home which is close to Lake Ontario.  Rochester New York is called "flower city" because they used to pride themselves on their beautiful flower gardens. There are so many lakes near the finger lakes region [...]

“Opal” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Opal" Acrylic on Canvas This piece was done as a fun piece that was a play on color. I wanted to interact with different color washes and see how they looked and corresponded. In the end it looks something like flowers in an overgrown garden. But I chose to name it Opal because in essence [...]

“Roma” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Roma" Acrylic on Canvas - April 2015 As I was painting this I was thinking about time that Richard and I had spent in Italy. The covered walkways are reminiscent of the time that we spent in Bologna. It was so hot that day that we were there that we couldn't even truly enjoy ourselves. [...]

“One Drop” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"One Drop" Acrylic on Canvas - April 2015 This painting is actually a realization of a much older sketch I have that I had made years ago before I had even moved to Korea. I was feeling really sad because of life circumstances and was so sad that it was actually really difficult to cry [...]

“Natura” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Natura" Acrylic on Canvas This one started out initially as my attempt to have fun with drawing the human body in an abstract manner. I started by creating an "S" line curve that is all too popular in Korea - but then as I started to paint I realized that it was a tree - [...]

“Off to the Gypsies” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

When I was a kid, one of my mom's biggest joking threats was that if I didn't behave she'd ship me off to the gypsies. As my great-grandparents had come over from Hungary as a little one I was sure that someway, somehow she'd find a connection and off I'd go! Needless to say I [...]

“Minnie on Ice” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Minnie on Ice" Acrylic on Canvas - March 2016 This one was painted especially for my niece.  Though she is still a little one, she has already seen so much life – but every time I talk to her she is all smiles and joy.  Her favorite character since she could talk has been Minnie [...]

“Daydreaming” – Abstract Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Daydreaming" Abstract Acrylic on Canvas This reminds me of laying outside on a warm summer day looking up at the sky full of clouds, framed by trees as it passed by for hours. Taking it in and absorbing the peacefulness that came with just relaxing and enjoying nature. This artwork is a one of a [...]

“Incandescence” – Abstract Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Incandescence" Abstract Acrylic on Canvas - March 2015 I painted this one shortly after I painted Child of Light. I was thinking about light and sunsets and the rays of light that stream off of a sunset. Incandescence is the emission of a visible light by a body. Light is made of up a spectrum [...]

“Knighthood” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Knighthood" Acrylic on Canvas - November 2015 I could go into an extensive description of why I loved knights, but to sum it up they had cool “L” shaped moves, they looked like horses, and I was a girl who liked princess stories with knights in shining armor and horses. As I grew up, I [...]

“Above the Clouds” – Abstract Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Above the Clouds" Abstract Acrylic on Canvas - March 2015 I painted this shortly before going to bed. It was intended to be a bit unconventional. I often paint as a form of meditation or prayer and often do not plan an outcome of my paintings. Dreaming of hot air balloons is said to symbolize [...]

“Ballet Shoe in Red” – Abstract Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

Ballet Shoe in Red Abstract Acrylic on Canvas - March 2015 Another request that had recently been made was for a ballet piece. To me, there is something terribly magnificent about ballet dancers. I myself took several years when I was little but was never able to obtain the coveted toe shoes.. Dance classes cost [...]

“Take Life by the Handlebars” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

Take Life by the Handlebars Abstract Acrylic on Canvas - March 2015 Richard and I went for a drive the other day through the city of Rochester around sunset where we recently made our home. He and his mother have been trying to teach me about my new stomping grounds, the history of the city [...]

“Anima” – Abstract Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Anima" Abstract Acrylic on Canvas - 2015 Anima is a Latin word meaning soul. Each and every piece of art that I produce I feel carries a piece of my soul. They express what I cannot. In continuation with an Oz/Beck theme I had going, I started thinking about my Phoenix painting that I had [...]

“Moonlit Overlook” – Abstract Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Moonlit Overlook" Abstract Acrylic on Canvas - Summer 2013 I painted this one by the moonlight on my in-law's back porch. I was experimenting with finger-painting techniques and trying to capture the luminous moon and how it glows and casts light on the the earth that is fogged in mist at night. Some might view [...]

“It’s Alive” – Abstract Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"It's Alive" Abstract Acrylic on Canvas - Summer 2014 This is one of the first paintings that I did upon coming back to the USA for the summer.

“Someplace Warm” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Someplace Warm" Acrylic on Canvas - March 2016 It gets cold in New York.  While we’ve had a mild winter sometimes it still gets very cold.  I am not a cold person – I want and need sunshine and warm temperatures.  Heck sometimes I just need lots of warm colors – they make me happy.  [...]

“Garnet City” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Garnet City" Acrylic on Canvas - January 2015 I find that I often paint paintings of cities on water.. which makes sense as many cities (especially older cities) tend to be near major bodies of water due to transportation, trade, and natural resources back in the days before planes and cars. I wanted to try [...]

“Winter Lilies” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

Winter Lilies Acrylic on Canvas - December 2015 This is one of the only paintings that I did in December. It was a busy month and a lot of my free artsy time was spent making Christmas cookies and decorating the house.. and frankly, sometimes I need to take a vacation break from painting and [...]

“Reflection” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Reflection" Acrylic on Canvas - Summer 2014 The other major piece that I had done at the cabin in the Adirondack mountains.  This piece is actually quite large.  I sat on the hill behind the cabin and painted what I saw.  I tried to see it in a different light than I had with Time [...]

“Love” – Abstract Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

“Love” Abstract Acrylic on Canvas – Summer 2013 Part of 2013 entailed me figuring out more of what my actual painting style was.  True my paintings tend to be a bit darker of subject matter and have more muted almost greyish tones, but I was starting to find my own..  This painting is one of [...]

“Liberty” – Abstract Acrylic on Paper thumbnail

“Liberty” Abstract Acrylic on Paper, 2013 This painting was created.. by accident.  I was actually using the paper that this one was created on to protect the floor as I was painting.  When I removed the initial canvas painting though I saw an image through the blobs of color on the paper.  And so I [...]

“Fauna” – Abstract Acrylic thumbnail

"Fauna" Abstract Acrylic on Canvas - 2013 I was thinking of fairytales and somehow thought upon Sleeping Beauty.  I had read a very old version when I was a little girl and the fairies all had hats that looked like flowers.  I was trying to do a yellow umbrella painting but the two ideas clashed [...]

“Hope” – Abstract Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Hope" Abstract Acrylic on Canvas - November 2013 The alternative title to this one is Maki.  Because when I first looked into her eyes I saw love and felt hope.

"Because He Loves Me" (Korean Drama Rooftop Prince) Acrylic and Mixed Media on Canvas 15in. x 18in.

“Gangnam Style” – Acrylic on Canvas thumbnail

"Gangnam Style" Abstract Acrylic on Canvas I was trying to think of some of the spirit that captures Korea, and I couldn't help but think of Gangnam. It's the hope of Korea, where those with the most money and therefore the best education and brightest futures reside. It's fast paced, so fast that sometimes it's [...]

“Riders” – Sketch on Canvas thumbnail

"Riders" Sketch on Canvas The plan has always been to eventually color this one in, but at the moment it's a sketch of an idea. A prose is you will for a drama that I talked about in a video.  This drama doesn't actually exist.  I titled it Riders and the overall idea was that [...]
