About "Waiting for Home"
I lived and work in South Korea for six years and the country and it's people are very dear to me. One day I was paging through a Korean fashion magazine and found this image, it evoked the homesick feeling I felt at the time. I had 3 months left before returning home and it was -12 degrees in Korea. I was cold and missing home and decided to draw this photograph in charcoal to keep my mind busy and to forget my longing for home. I do not claim any copyright for the original photograph, this is just my interpretation of it.
I am inspired by everything I love such as swimming,dancing, poetry, music, nature as well as fashion. The graceful movement of a ballerina, the poetic atmosphere created by ordinary objects and human portraits and the thousands of stories a facial expression can tell. My art is not limited to one subject choice, I follow my heart and paint pictures that are true to my interests. I like to preserve a sense of innocence and purity in my work. A beautiful image that can inspire the viewer to find something beautiful and integral inside themselves. To pursue something beautiful in their one life on this earth.
