Now living in Buford, Georgia, her focus is on children's book illustration. Her passion for drawing began as a child sketching in the sand and on the rocks all about the remote little island on which she grew up in Korea's Yellow Sea. She likes to think her illustrations today are done with the same joy and enthusiasm as that little girl's on the island.
"Through poetry, the inspiring words uplift young readers, planting seeds of empathy, kindness and community support. It is an ideal picture book approach for positively teaching kindness." --Children's Book Review
