This piece is made by layering Korean mulberry paper on a wooden panel with homemade flour glue. Then I apply a glue base. Next, I draw my sketch, and trace it on the paper. Then I paint three or four layers of a background color using pigments and glue base. Lastly, I paint the subject in fine detail, which takes most of time. The painting is on a cradled wood panel with finished edges.

I placed two objects that can not be seen together in real life to present the imbalances and irregularities in our world. Hate and love, good and evil, joy and sorrow. However, in my painting, the imbalance is hidden. Instead tranquility, peace, and happiness standout. I want to show the happiness and peace we continually pursue and long for, even in the middle of this imperfect world.

Cumming, Georgia

Heejin has been been drawing for as long as she can remember. She grew up with a serious illness and spent much of her childhood in the hospital. Drawing served as an outlet for her, bringing her peace and distraction. Heejin says there was no doubt as she grew up that she wanted to be an artist. She studied oriental painting extensively as a college student in South Korea and then went on to study art therapy in graduate school.

Thank you! Im glad you like it. I hope Matthew will grow to love this turtle and indeed be a proud and driven boy. I have a two year old daughter and another one on the way, so I know how important it is to have a nicely decorated nursery. I am so happy my turtle is part of your son's nursery.

We love this piece! We purchased it framed in a blue frame and it looks fantastic. It will hang in the nursery of our recently born son, Matthew. The theme of the nursery is ocean & turtles. Matthew is an only child, and we hope he'll grow up to be "proud & driven" as the artist portrays the turtle in this print.
