Yoonmi Nam

I am now the proud owner of this amazing print.  We traded at Frogman's.

She printed her images onto fabric, they make a unique Toile. Oohhlala.

I have been watching this artist for a few years and recently had the pleasure of meeting her in person at  Frogman's in Vermillion, SD. This short bio was downloaded from her website.

Yoonmi Nam was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea, spending part of her youth in Canada.  She received a B.F.A. degree in Printmaking from Hongik University in Seoul, Korea.  She moved to America to study at the Rhode Island School of Design, where she received a M.F.A. degree in Painting and Printmaking in 2000.  Her work considers the cross-cultural experience and sense of transience throu­gh prints, installations and drawings.  Her recent research interests include the study of traditional ink paintings and woodblock prints from East Asia, including those from Japan, Korea, China, and Tibet.  Currently, she is an Associate Professor and the Associate Chair of the Visual Art Department at the University of Kansas.
