Kyung was born in South Korea and moved to Canada in 2000 to learn English. She originally came to Canada to become a florist as she ran a flower shop in Korea. While she was learning English at Sheridan she saw illustrations produced by the students and faculty and that was when she started to dream about becoming an illustrator.

She graduated Sheridan ITAL as class valedictorian in 2007 and now she lives in Canada and always wonders what adventures might be behind the next door she opens.

Her work has been recognized by American Illustration, Society of Illustrators, 3x3 and was awarded Creative Quarterly Best of Show in 2007. Currently, she is working on an illustrated children's book called "Volubilis and the Three Gardens" which will be published in France.
