John is a South Korean born, American artist who grew up in Texas and now resides with his family in the greater Seattle area.
While growing up, John was influenced by his artistic mother who did traditional Korean painting, woodcarving, and dancing. These childhood experiences deepened his love for the universal languages of Art and Music.
John was an accomplished musician in his early years and showed interest in art. However, his interest and talent was put aside to pursue “real” education through degrees in the fields of natural science and computer technology.
His career as a fine art photographer started in 2010 when a friend at work introduced him to photography.
John enjoys capturing the images of the Pacific Northwest, and infuses the images with his own artistic vision.
