Growing up in Korea, art was my first love, and my dream was to become an artist. When I was 16, my family immigrated to the U.S. Without speaking any English, I felt I needed to find a different career than art that offered security to support myself and help others. I decided to become a physician, although it felt like an impossible dream. After many grueling years while learning English and supporting myself, I received my M.D. and residency training from Yale. I have had a very successful and fulfilling career as a physician. But I never gave up on my passion for art, and I studied it whenever I could while practicing medicine and raising two children.  

For the past 10 years, I've had an amazing career as a physician-artist. I've had numerous exhibits and received many recognitions. In recent years, my paintings have been shown in International Exhibits in New York, Paris, Miami, Madrid, Brussels, and Luxembourg and get shipped worldwide. 

As a physician, I witness a lot of human suffering, and my goal is to lessen my patients' physical suffering. My mission as an artist is to bring Beauty, Joy, and Healing amidst the darkness in the world. My colors are beautiful, vibrant, and uplifting. 

My art and life story have been featured in numerous articles, podcasts, T.V., etc. I recently had the honor of giving a TEDx talk where I shared my art and my journey as a physician-artist and offered inspiration to live life to its fullest.
