About Kyung Soon Park

Kyung received her BAA from Sheridan ITAL and worked as an award winning illustrator since 2007. She recently changed her career as to fine art. Her work is influenced by the variety of forms found in nature. Kyung's work invites the viewer to a peaceful world filled with unfamiliar flora. Her mastery of colour delivers both joy and depth to her themes and her unique talents of illustration bring detail and finesse to her images. She finds inspiration in her memories of the Korean textiles from her parents’ business back in South Korea, and from her hands-on artistry with plants and flowers.

Kyung is concentrating on fine art painting after working as an illustrator for many years. Her illustrations have been published internationally in Switzerland, England, France, US and Canada.

She has worked with:
Washington Post, Metropolitan Magazine, Running Time, Outdoor Life Magazine, How Magazine, Oxford University Press [England], More Magazine, Report On Business, The Globe and Mail, Runners World, Clarion’s Book, Dirt Rag Magazine, Canadian Music Publishers Association, City of Mississauga, Editions Chan-Ok [France], Technical Analysis of Stocks & Commodities, Annabelle Magazine [Switzerland], Seattle Metropolitan, Harvard University Press
