About the Artist

Becky Sungja Kim is a fine artist specializing in watercolor and oil painting. Kim’s passion for the visual arts emerged when she was a teenager living in South Korea, taking private lessons in classical drawing, watercolor, and oil painting. After moving to the United States in 1982, Kim studied as an art student at Southern Illinois University and continuing her studies at The Art League School in Alexandria, Virginia.

Simplicity is integral for Kim in both her personal life and for her creative practice, pairing simplified forms with sophisticated colors to express her desired aesthetic. Motivated by negativity and inspired by beauty, Kim creates work that exudes peace, serenity, and harmony with many of her paintings reflecting her subconscious, lucid dreams, and childhood memories.
