Joanne Kim grew up in the happy chaos that is familiar to large families. Surrounded by strong identities, she found her voice through her art.
"Over the years it has been honed to reflect the images that I am lucky enough to witness. Through my work I wish to contribute things that are good and beautiful into the world. I am a self taught artist blessed to be able to pursue my passion and do what I love.
'Hyemyung' is the name of my first collection and also my Korean given name. It represents the voice I have found through art and also embodies my heritage. These are my first pieces inspired by my new home here in New York. My greatest desire as an artist is to share my romantic perspective with all of my viewers and to give something beautiful back to this world."
