“If you are a dreamer, come in, If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, A Hope-er, a Pray-er, a Magic Bean buyer, If you're a pretender, come sit by my fire, For we have some flax-golden tales to spin Come in! Come in!”  ~ James Patterson

Eunkyung Kim Cazier was born in South Korea.   As a young girl she drew pictures and journaled.  During high school she concentrated on art and spent countless hours developing her craft.  " After graduating with a degree in ceramic sculpture and Fine Art from Seoul National University of Science and Technology, Seoul Korea in 1992,” she says, “I decided it was time to take on new challenges. I left my feelings for pottery and art behind and traveled to New York, achieving a degree in interior design. Then moving south to Wilmington, I pursued a career in architecture. I never thought that I would rekindle my passion for pottery and art that was left behind. I gave up my career to be a stay at home mother - a feeling that had been buried started to grow inside of me. Now I am a mother of two and a private art teacher. I don't have a lot of time for myself, but my desire for my art is much stronger than before.”
Kim’s artwork is colorful and folky.  It invokes the memories of meaningful  experiences.  Her subjects conjure stories of happiness and fun.  Her colorful palette is lighthearted and put together like a quilt, each section thoughtfully playing alongside each other.   Her images seem to sing and birds are often found playing on the minds of the characters.  Most are happy and sing song and give the feeling of free spirits.   
However, a few may be dark and mysterious calling out the inner feelings of unsettling dreams.  Looking on as an outsider the bird sitting in the hole of the moon wonders, “Can they hear me?”   As a Korean student in NYC surrounded by a community of English speaking peers, this thought must have entered the artist’s own mind. 
You will see the persuasion of her Korean roots in symbols and shapes.  These captivating canvases are a must to peruse. 
After visiting her husband’s family in New Mexico, turquoise seduced her and she began making jewelry with a southwest flair.  
She says, “My inspiration for Blue Lime Jewelry designs comes from nature, the ocean, and a turquoise trail in the rustic desert where I fell in love with blue lime turquoise.”   Kim is an extraordinary woman with an extra ordinary story. 
It is one that is full of her own actions creating happiness.  She has taught classes at Artful Living Group and her students rave about her teaching skills.
Join us in welcoming Eunkyung Kim Cazier to Artful Living Group Thursday August 6th from 6:30 – 8:30pm.  Her paintings will hang in the upper gallery for the month of August.  Join us for “Dreamer.”  xo mo
