About So Yoon

So Yoon Lym is originally from Seoul, South Korea, but spent her early childhood in Kenya and Uganda until she was seven. After moving to New Jersey, USA for several years, Lym moved to Normandy, France to study under Ung No Lee, an exiled Korean painter who had an incredible impact on her life and her pursuit of art.

So Yoon describes the work by saying, “I started this series of hair and braid paintings in the summer of 2008 for a group show that I was in called: Inspiration: Paterson at the Passaic County Community College Art Galleries in November–December 2008. These acrylic on paper hair and braid patterns are based on photos I have taken of students and strangers I have come across in Paterson, New Jersey where I have worked for the past 9 years.”

"HI So Yoon Lym,I have been working in Paterson as an art teacher as well. I saw your exhibit at PCCC and I loved it. I also enjoyed your students' work that has been displayed at the Paterson Museum for our annual art show and have been very impressed. I am now in JFK, BTMF Academy. Perhaps I'll see you at one of our "great" PD meetings. Take care,Debra Storch"
