She is an artist. She studied arts in Germany and back in Korea she served as a college lecturer. The public pays attention to her work on abstract lines. She also heads "Another way of seeing", an art gallery that exhibits works of the blind people.Ten years ago, destiny took her to an art class for the blind and since then she is supporting art education for the blind. She says 'we don't need eyes to do art' and she believes that 'everyone has the intrinsic desire for drawing and anything perceived by our senses can be realized in many ways.' It is through this process that blind people open their hearts not only to themselves but also to the outside world. She does not think she is helping the blind people though. She claims that they have a special gift of creativity and that is why she considers her job as a collaborative joint project with really creative people.
