My name is Julie kwen, born in South Korea. I moved to New Zealand in 1999.
I have always been passionate about art when I was a child and enjoyed art as a hobby. My dream was always to become an artist and wanted to work in the art industry.
Therefore I wanted to go down a similar pathway and became a plumbing drawing designer using Auto CAD which was 25 years ago in Korea.
Ever since I came in to New Zealand, I've never lost my passion for art and kept wanting to draw and paint.
Painting was something new to me ever since I came to New Zealand and it was very different from drawing. I kept on painting until I found my ability to paint. I love drawing realistic paintings as it develops different emotions in every new painting I do.
Ever since, I wanted to sell my own paintings, I began working in a small office about 3 years ago from where started to sell my own paintings.
I want to be an artist, where people can admire my paintings and I want to be acknowledged and recognised for what I do. I want to be able provide people with joy and a sense of healing through my paintings I create.
I am beyond excited and thankful for giving me this opportunity to share my painting on this platform at ArtSelect Gallery.
