Born in South Korea in 1955, S.H. Song (nom de plume Humphrey) received his artistic skills and formal training in his homeland. His first personal exhibition was at the U.S. Forces in Korea in 1983. He spent the next years exhibiting work in major cities and received many national awards.
During his painting career it was the 18th century landscape painters that he found pure inspiration. He became a follower of the master British painter Samuel Reynolds. The studies assisted his development as a landscape artist sought after internationally. He feels very strongly that the true expression of art resides in nature. The very delicate differences of color blends into his composition and arrangement of each landscape. In his painting the beauty of life and art converge in a remarkable way.
