I enjoy making books and sharing my love of art with others. I have enjoyed crafting for most of my life. It started soon after being adopted from South Korea at the age of 8, when my mom taught me how to cross stitch and sew. I became interested in quilting after getting married and traveling the world with my husband. I was a science teacher by day, but always busy with creating some form of art or craft in my spare time. I later picked up more hobbies when I became a mom, knitting as I sat by my children’s bedside and scrapbooking all of their firsts. I began to explore watercolor and mixed media only recently, and fell in love with the idea of expressing myself through art for myself. I used art journaling and book binding as a form of self healing through the pandemic. Now, I enjoy making books that combine many of my previous talents while providing a place to beautifully showcase the papers, textiles, and vintage treasures that I have been collecting.
I am the executive producer of Fodder School, a year-round online mixed media class that encourages the making and use of collage fodder. We host a different teacher each month and guide you through the creation of collage fodder during the first half of the month, and then we focus on a project where we use the fodder you've created in the second half. This process repeats each month for 12 months with some bonus lesson thrown in by some of our teachers! Find out more about Fodder School and learn what collage fodder is by clicking here.

I was interviewed by Ali Manning from Vintage Page Designs where I also showed a demo of one of the Fodder School techniques that I will be teaching.
