Beauty & Makeup Illustration

While it started with some simple product illustrations for Korean skincare shops, I've since illustrated beauty blog banners, skincare packaging, and created brand illustrations. Inspired by flatlay photography, my watercolor paintings are detailed, whimsical, and bright - perfect for bloggers and influencers in need of something a bit more unique and personal for their brand.

Concept Art & Fantasy Illustration

Coming from a background in both Science Illustration and manga comic books, I love painting scenes for book covers, concept art, or character portraits. 

Mostly painted on large formats in mixed media (combining watercolors and colored pencils) these illustrations combine elements from fantasy, comic, fashion illustration, and concept art.


Similar to the fantasy and concept illustrations above, my children's picture book drawings are created traditionally with mixed media, from watercolor to gouache, colored pencils to ink, and then optimized for printing and digital publishing. Lovingly detailed and colorful drawings to illustrate stories or educational materials.


Botanical illustrations, with influences of scientific depictions as well as hints of whimsy and abstraction. Perfect for custom stationery, wedding invitations, or branding decor.


Music Album Cover Illustrations

Again, a whimsical mix of realism and simplicity. Created as part of a series of illustrations for a Korean music company in watercolor and digital media.
