Her works focus on painting with a variety of materials - oil, acrylic, beeswax, watercolour. Her experience as a police officer in Korea and as a mother of three children turned her attention to nature and the beings around her. Her love and communication to ignored and devalued beings are constantly reflected in her art. She, too, continues to move at her own pace in a chaotic world.

I like to observe the silent movements of nature. They lead lives at their own pace, continuously. Every moment and every movement is revealed in its entirety physically. A series of organic lines that are not geometric and linear are their gestures, their lives. As a human being living in a society of material, commercial, mass production, and anonymity, I am not a great person, but I accumulate meaningfully day by doing what I can do at my own pace. Nature's gestures in this repetitive routine give me great comfort.
In my painting, I wanted to praise the trivial things of everyday life, the parts that are easily neglected because they are insignificant and not pretty. All your movements and all your moments are meaningful, and I want to let you know that someone is watching you with lovely eyes.
