Kyungsoo Lee was born, raised, and educated in Seoul, Korea. She began painting as a small child, displaying a precocious talent for art and for painting in particular. She continues today, many years later as she has always done: painting. Since receiving her MFA at the Graduate School of Sungshin Women's University in 1983 and then moving with her family to California in 1984. She is the artist to be fully trained in a combination of oriental and western European aesthetics. She approaches her canvas with apparently little or no preconceived notion of what will occur. She has the disciplined ability to quiet the verbal, analytical part of her mind and allow that silent creative half of the brain to dominate. Her painting is a process of discovery, evolving from the repetition of gestures and the layering of color over color. Her perceptive color sense lends strength to the delicate line and soft tones of her imaginary natural abstractions and inner landscapes. Kyungsoo Lee was named " Artist of the Month" and given her first major solo show at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Seoul, Korea in 1989. Her painting are found in collections are around the world; collections of Museums, Corporations, and individuals. Her life has been a journey, and the only constant in her life is painting. She has achieved a facility to speak eloquently with the line, color, to speak poetry without words to those who are receptive. Painting is her true blue friend.

As a spirit animal, it may remind us to enjoy life's simple pleasures and the power of swiftness and flexibility. Inspired by this, you'll be inclined to accomplish what seems impossible to most while keeping it light and enjoyable. To me, hummingbird delivers simple beauty and optimism. I wish the viewer feel the same way that I think.
