“Hye Kyung was born and raised in Anyang, South Korea. Her interest in art began at a very early age. At the beginning of her first year at middle school, she decided to truly focus on her art. In 1990, she won first place in a nationwide art competition for middle school students. This led to her receiving a scholarship to attend Kaewon Art High School. Upon graduation, she attended Won Kwong University majoring in Fine Arts.
She has exhibited in Korea and also pursued a career in teaching art to Korean students. In September 2008 she immigrated to Cornwall, Ontario with her daughter and husband. Since arriving, she has exhibited numerous times in Eastern Ontario and has participated in several outdoor art shows.
Currently, she loves to paint with watercolours with a focus on nature. She also uses India ink and hand-ground paint to complete her canvases. Her most recent paintings focus on Canadian countryside and nature. She is passionate about finding her niche within the Canadian art community.”
