Jullia (Minjeong) Kim was born and raised in Seoul Korea. Her dream, which began at the age of five, was becoming an accomplished artist through drawing abstract paintings and continuous fine art education. Jullia holds a Bachelor of Fine Art (B.F.A.) Degree from Ewha Women’s University in Seoul Korea in 1995 and Postbaccalaureate (Post-Baac) Degree from Maryland Insti-tute College of Art (MICA) in Baltimore, Maryland, USA in 1997. Then, she moved to New York City and began to take an interest in a new field of applied art of interior design. Thinking that modern art can be reborn as a higher-quality and practical art through mutual harmony rather than separating fine art and applied art, she studied interior design of substantive space in addition to painting and obtained Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S) Degree from New York School of Interior Design in New York, USA in 2000. After completion of 5 years of painting and interior design studies, she returned to Korea in 2000 and worked as an interior designer and art director at major Korean firms for almost twenty years. Her accomplishments and recognitions include many international art awards, invited exhibitions, and interior design awards. Since 2005, she has been immersed in her artwork and has mostly expressed through various themes for human internal and external healing. Meanwhile, after moving to Hawaii, USA in 2020, she has been fascinated and inspired by nature in beautiful Hawaii Islands and is working on a new theme of nature painting. Her work on the Hawaiian sky is a method of capturing the various beautiful, breathtaking, and impressive colors of the Hawaiian sky in 24 hours a day, capturing only the characteristic parts of the sky, not the entire sky, and expressing them on a small canvas. She continues to create beautiful works in Hawaiian environment and thereby de-liver a message of joy and healing to many people.
My current works are mostly about Hawaiian Sky and My friends (dogs) in Hawaii in which I have focused on two titles of projects. The series of Hawaiian Skies are 10 paintings in one series that I had intended to be exhibited to show because I wanted to show them hourly variation.
