Now living in Provence since 1994, she was born in 1959 on a remote island in South Korea
Although she is fond of pastel and the wonderful richness of its shades, she is drawn to the depths of oil painting in which she can completely express herself. After ten years of self-expression and work with his master in the pure Korean tradition, she went to Hongik University in Seoul for formal training in visual arts. In 1994 she moved to Provence and discovered the wonderful lifestyle of the area, made popular in Peter Mayle’s stories. As a result, her work is evolving to be in perfect harmony with the light and colours of the Provence countryside.
Life and colours are bursting from the canvas, an enchanting mixture of movement and light. Lavender fields, olive trees, flowers in the bend of a path are all painted in a delicate and feminine style. She brings her still life paintings alive with delightful realism; stolen moments from a flower or fruit transport us into the paintings. Cora is a self-taught artist. Since she was a child, she has been fascinated with painting and drawing. By the age of twenty, she was already an accomplished, professional painter selling her art to galleries and corporate clients throughout the country.
