Emily was born in Seoul, South Korea in 1971. As she grew up in Seoul she would attend an art high school that would begin to foster her love for art. It started out as just a hobby, but quickly became a strong passion.
While in school, Emily learned how to capture beautiful scenery on canvas and was able to further develop her skills with a brush. This continuous learning of new styles would then drive her to want to become a professional artist. Over the years, her paintings have matured to include extreme amounts of detail as well as natural colors. This combination has allowed her artwork to make a statement as well as continue to strengthen Emily’s love for her work and further drive her to continue painting.
