My artist profile should be up on folkmade.com by this Friday! There’s an interview that I did so that might give you better ideas about how I work or just about me in general!

1. Tell us about your work
I am a graphic design student and freelance illustrator currently studying at RISD! I do a lot of watercolor illustration as well as some graphic design works. Most of my works on my website or Behance are watercolor illustration, but I try my best to show my graphic design works as well.



2. How did you come to be a professional artist/crafter/designer?
I was born in South Korea, but I studied in Indonesia. When I moved to Indonesia, the perception that I had in Korea that I would continue studying English and major in English literature was completely shattered as I was influenced greatly by the artistic environment I was in. In high school, I decided to become an artist and started making artworks. Eventually, in 2013, I could come to RISD to pursue my dream. Now I work as a freelance illustrator and am majoring in graphic design at RISD to become a professional graphic designer in near future.

3. Where do you draw your inspiration?
For now, I mostly work on my school projects (and my personal time is very limited due to RISD’s rigorous graphic design program) so I look at a lot of books and online resources to find my inspiration. But for my personal projects, I usually get inspirations from traveling and looking at new things! My work tends to change depending on where I am.



4. What’s your favorite item to create?
I love creating watercolor paintings! I am hoping I can make some real products such as stationery or clothing using my artworks before I graduate from RISD.


6. How long have you been in Rhode Island?
I came to Rhode Island for the first time in 2013 as I started school at RISD! It’s been around 2 years and I really love it!

7. What do you {heart} about Rhode Island?
I like how it’s not too busy (or crowded) but not too boring at the same time. I love the beautiful nature and the gorgeous colors of it that constantly inspire me.
Also I love collecting vintage things or even just going to vintage stores to look at stuff — Providence has a lot of cute little vintage shops and I am in love with them :)
