“I created new designs and structures of buildings for many years as an architect in Korea. I inherited the talent from my father, who was a skillful Korean fashion designer. For many years, I have been writing, drawing and creating. I am now working as a jeweler and metal artist in Fredricton, New Brunswick. I am interested in aesthetic hollowware & storytelling jewelry. Engraved on my metal pieces, are stories of the human soul.”
